Need propeller advice (Fundeck 196) and opinion on Turning Point Propellers

Hi all, and happy boating,

I have a 2004 Fundeck 196 with a 115 HP Mercury 4-stroke.  I LOVE the boat.  For twelve years, we cruised Lake Tohopekaliga (Toho) and loved every minute of it.  I joined this forum then and have enjoyed researching things with respect to my boat.  Every bid of advice I read here was spot on.

I have now given the boat to my daughter, who has two waterskiing teens.  The boat is only adequate when towing them and I'm sure it's the three blade prop (13-1/4 x 17).  I want to go up to a four blade prop.  As of now, I've done as much research as I can stand!  :-)

I read several discussions on this forum concerning repropping.  I've also read recommendations all over the web.

Unfortunately, I see a range of different answers, depending on the thread, and I'd love to start a discussion about your experiences with the Fundeck 196 with the 115 engine, and your experiences switching to a four-blade prop.  I'd also like your opinion on the Turning Point propellers, as I'm intrigued by their design.

Thanks in advance,
