Default m41 prop advice.. help please!!

I'm fairly new to the rc boating community, I've only owned an impulse 31(bone stock except for dual rubbers)
I'd like to get a little more speed to go with my cooling upgrades and have been looking into props. Nothing crazy but I'd like high 50s?? Any advice is greatly appreciated, and if there's already a thread point me in the direction, thanks in advance..

Nate

Personally never had that boat but I'd imagine around 45mm prop. The octura m445 is a great all around prop for rtr sized boats. As far as speed, first thing I'd do would be to get rid of the 2nd rudder. All you're doing is creating more drag in the water, slowing the boat down. There's no need for a dual rudder other than the fact it looks cool sitting on the stand.

Look up a guy by the name of Mark Sholund, he runs a prop sharpening business called props-4-U and can send you one already sharpened and balanced.
