Prop selection SD187 with Yamaha 115

As the title says, what are you running?  Looking to go 4 blade.  Any 187 or 188 owners running one?  If so what size?  My stock prop stinks as far as getting up / staying up on plane.

    I have a Merc 200 on the back of my SS 188.  I've paired it with a Mercury stainless steel High Five 19P.

    You'd need to know you're max RPM range on your outboard and some existing specs.  

    While yours is a Yamaha, you can use this to get you in the general range.  [link=][/link] for prop/pitch.

    4 and 5 blades will reduce your top end speed however will get you on plane much quicker and provide more 'grip' in turns/corners and provider better watersports performance.

    I would like to know what prop the 187 owners are running.  The 115 Yamaha comes with a 3 blade 13 1/4 x 17p and it misses easily when I make turns tubing. I'm not sure if my motor is mounted low enough it could still go another inch lower or do I need to look at a 4 blade?  Any thoughts
