If you're wanting to try a Sensenich, get with Terry Farkas at Dyna Marine Airboats. He's a very good guy and can help you get the right prop for your boat

I didn't notice what kind of hull you had that 200 on, but I have an 11'6" DB ultralight with a 200 on it and tried several props before deciding on the 70" Sensenich NGH. I have the 72" blades in the short hub. I tried the 68" blades in the medium hub and my current set up performed better all around. My boat runs mid 50's and goes anywhere on dry ground. I also tried a 70" 5 blade Saber, 70" NGQ, 70" Q, and a 70" 3 blade Excalibur. The results were as follows:

70" 5 blade Saber: smoothest of all tested, most responsive, fast, lots of fun to ride with but was worried about low end push on dry
70" NGQ: amazing low end push, weird harmonic sound at cruise, fell on its face at top end
70" Q: performance all across the board
70 3 blade Excalibur: smooth, responsive, fast, but no bottom end push

I am no expert and I'm sure everyone's results will vary depending on their set up. I'm only offering my experience as a reference. I plan on buying the 5 blade Saber to run locally since we don't run dry often, and keep my NGH for running Kissimmee area.

Hey Rich, It pushes really good on my set up. Really been thinking about a 3 blade whirlwind though. I've had WhirlWind on all of my boats besides this one and i'm thinking that might be the next route
