What in your opinion would be the best prop for Yamaha Vmax HPDI 250 on skeeter I class 20, hole shot is a bit off right now and top end is a bit lower than what it should be. It has Yamaha prop on there now and honestly I don't know what pitch etc....

Steve can set you up. I'm running a Tempest Plus on a ox66 200 and like it just fine.

It snot uncommon for an outboard to lose 20-30 HP in the hot summer months. This will affect your holeshot and top speed. I run a 25 pitch Fury in the summer and a 26 in the cooler months. Top end is about 5 mph slower in July than in Feb.

I know it will run better in colder, clearer water but I'm just looking for something a little different

25T1 is the prop of choice on that rig.
boils down to getting the prop shaft height set correctly.

Ken is right.. no boat is gonna perform all that great in this heat.. just something
we all have to deal with.

we can work with that boat and get it better in the heat.. but, just understand
you may be starting over when it cools off.
then you'll have two props etc. for the different seasons.
