    13 X 16 ? Ouch
    hate to tell you that your original dealer have no idea what they are talking about.
    all 2855 are single engine boat.. 5.7 engine is mated with an Alpha1, 7.4 big block engine is mated with a Bravo drive.
    single engine 5.7 engine is already underpowered in a 2855. You must have the biggest diameter propeller she can swing which is 16" diameter, she will struggle to get on plane with anything else!

      Not sure that’s correct. I think somewhere in the mid 90’s the larger single engine cruisers were equipped with bravos. Twins still used Alphas. Someone can correct me if I’m wronge.
      Regardless the shop will know what drive you have or you can post a pic.

      EDIT: Didn’t see Joons response, carry on.....

        I'm just writing what was told to me

        I phoned the shop again to see how things are going.
        They too did their research, and ended up with the German (I'm in The Netherlands) importer that said "hands down you need a revolution 4, 14.625x15, and nothing else".
        Could quite possible be the one I had before. (who knows :P ) It is the same that I posted on the previous page.
        With some luck it would arrive today, otherwise next Monday.

          OK, prop came in, so they took the boat out of the water.
          Unfortunately they discovered a small tare in the aluminium tail that needs fixing on Monday.
          However, they mounted the prop and went on a testdrive.
          The boat planes without using the tabs, and runs 55 km/hr @ 4600 RPM (that is a bit faster than before) and with the top up!

            sounds like they found a good one. The boat was loaded up with fuel, water, and gear during the test?

              about half a tank, as normally would be.
              All our cr*p is still on the boat.
              Not sure whether he was alone or not, but he sounded quite pleased over the phone.

                Just picked up the boat.
                Trolling is no different.
                However planing the boat is a matter of maybe 4 seconds. No trim tabs nothing.
                It just lifts out off the water effortless and right after that the nose lowers by itself. Still no tabs

                this is still with 2 adults, 2 children and top up.
                In planing speeds, the boat goes a little faster too.

                So I’m content

                This prop has its blades a bit further to the rear as opposed to the previous one I had.
