Hey guys . I currently have a 17 pitch  stainless prop on my 60HO. WOT I get approx 34 miles an hour. I'm thinking of going to a 19 pitch to pick up more speed. I am looking for an aluminum prop this time. What part number am I look for ? And do I require a hub kit?

More important is your WOT rpm's when properly trimmed (and correct motor Height is first).  You want to run in the Optimum range for your motor, hull and loading.

You could just increase pitch first, and pick up the top mph's for a while before your engine becomes more like a boat anchor...  Lugging Kills.
