Hi
A Octura X442 could work good with your boat. A prather P215 also would work here. A Grupner K42 carbon fiber plastic prop is much cheaper and performs perfectly. All have 3/16" drilled hubs and will have to be sleeved down to the 4mm shaft you have. This is easy to do and works well.

I had a CEN Racing boat for a while to do a review article on. I found the Octura X-637/3 prop about the best one for it.

Steve's got them in stock but you can ask him if he's still sharpening and balancing them. http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...ries+1.6+Pitch

OK, off-topic but CEN made them in both electric and nitro powered. Start a thread on it and I'll toss you some tips.
