    That sucks. How deep is the water where it spun off? How fast were you going? You could have diver look around. Depending on your speed and the depth of the water, they may be able to locate it. The problem is props don't always fall straight down. Might be worth it to pay a diver to look around for a bit.

    Lovergine had the right of way and the pleasure boat was not looking and turned into Mikes Fountain and then proceeded to throttle into Morgan's boat in a panic. Many witnesses told the same story to Police.

    I have a LH Merc five blade 35 I will sell cheap. The problem with losing props is you will have to buy a set used or one new prop. Nobody seperates these things. I have also learned the hard way that the prop nut can only be used twice and then throw them away and buy a new one. Mercury says replace every time you take them off.

    Hey Andy, Just stumbled on your thread. To be really honest when I first saw your boat at your shop I was a little worried but looks like you pulled it off. Love the red and she sounds great too. Hope to swing buy again soon. Your old lady has bigger balls than most men do. Regards K.C.
    The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
