Best prop and wear ring for sl 700
Noticing my sl 700 feels like its spinning, today i had to tow a brp into shore and it hardly pull it and if i punched it, it seemed to feel like clutch slip.
So being that its old and likely the original prop and wear ring what is a better option for prop on a stock sl 700 and where is a good (price) place to order new wear ring?

First off, good to hear that a Polaris machine was pulling in a Doo...
Secondly, pull your jet pump off and measure the gap between the impeller and wear ring with a feeler gauge. Standard clearance is .002 - .008 with a limit of .020. If your gap is within this tolerance, replacement will not improve performance.
Also look at the condition of the impeller leading and trailing edges, and the stator's edges as well.
Lastly, it is quite possible that your jet pump, ride plate, intake grate, or through hull are leaking. Check that the ride plate and intake grate are fully and completely sealed to the hull.
Check the condition of your through hull bearing carrier and make sure it is fully greased to prevent water or air leakage.

There are no water leaks...hull stays pretty dry tiny bit comes in but not enough to even flip the bilge i keep a close eye and it never pumps....i think water that gets in is from the hood from spinning.
It has a lot of knicks and dings on the prop i know that i will have to get around to pulling it out her shortly...it runs great just if you do tight circles or spins you can feel its not pushing out fast it is spinning....same as pulling the doo in if i punched it, it felt like wheel spin so to speak.
