I'm needing some advice on prop size...I've got a 1652 Alweld with a 50 hp mercury 2 stroke...8 inch jackplate...prop is 13×11...I believe it was on a pontoon before I bought it...took it out and ran it and would only get to about 30 to 32 mph and than it would seem like it was missing but it's not...I'm thinking I need to go to a 13 or a 14...suggestions please

Use the Prop Calculator here NOW ... https://turningpointpropellers.com/PROPWIZARD/ and put in YOUR hull/motor and actual/honest weights for all gear carried, or pick a hull that is closest in match for what YOU have. See what that calculator tells you that YOU should be using for your exact rig and how equipped.
