Choosing the correct prop

I could use some help please. I’m replacing the prop on my G3 17’ CC Gator Tough. The prop I took off has no identification markings…none. The motor is a Yamaha F60. I don’t have a tachometer. I would like to get as close as possible to what I have now. Boat alone is approx 900 lbs.
Any ideas on how I determine the proper prop for this boat?
Thanks in advance.

I did find, finally, find the info on the current prop. It’s a 10-5/8 X 12 G.
That’s a lot less pitch than yours. Now I’m curious as to how a higher pitched prop would perform on my boat.
I assume you’re pleased with the performance of the 15 pitch you have?

More top end/less hole shot.
