Turning Point Propellers released an updated Prop Wizard 4.0 to help dealers and customers find the right prop for a boat.

Prop Wizard 4.0 automatically scales for optimal use on a smart phone, tablet, laptop or personal computer.

Drop-down menus and autocomplete functions initiate a search of Prop Wizard's database of more than 350,000 boat models spanning 35 years, and 7,000 engines.

With enhanced algorithmic ability, it delivers pinpoint accuracy in calculating the ideal Hustler aluminum or Express stainless steel prop for a boat.

The tool can make a recommendation without an exact model by using a boat's hull type, length, beam and dry net weight, giving boatbuilders potentially helpful information.

Dealers can tailor Prop Wizard to display only propellers in their inventory, or amend IDs and part numbers to their own SKUs and prices. Prop Wizard returns customers to the dealer's Web page once recommendations are made.

The Prop Wizard 4.0 results page includes both Turning Point Hustler and Express propeller housings and matching MasterGuard hub kits, complete with current and superseded part numbers for matching to inventory.

Pictures of each propeller's box label enable identification. Prop Wizard also enables the dealer to email a request to have prop choices reviewed by a Turning Point propulsion engineer.
