Well I finally dropped a cylinder on one of my 200 HPDIS in January. Was sort of in a panic trying to locate new motors as there weren't any of the f200xca motors any where. A I received a tip on a pair of F200 xca motorswith very low hours. Flew down to Houston to take a look and ran them. Had them shipped to my Yamaha man for installation. I went to run the boat yesterday and picked it up to take it to the tower man for a new tower with controls. Talked to a few people about propping these motors on this hull and ended up with Powertech REL 3 14 x18p props. I must say these motors preformed better than I expected. With 180 gallons of fuel and two on board she topped out at 50mph 5900rpms. Jumped right out of the hole with no hesitation at all. 34mph cruise was 4100 rpms burning 19.5 gph. Totally different feeling boat and much quieter.
Ended up redoing the console, replacing the fuel lines, new battery cables, all new digital rigging etc. Also very impressed with the digital controls and single screen gauge.

Good day to you sir, could you please post pics of the boat? Iíve owned this boat for a couple of years and curious where you have it propped. I just added a custom T-Top to mine, and Iím concerned I might be propped a little tall.
Thanks,

Very cool. I would think that it changes the ride with the extended water line.
