Check your oil regularly,
No power starts out of the hole, it is not a drag racer.
Do not FLY the boat, it does not have wings.
Yearly inspections help but if not yearly every other year.
Could be any of the above, I just bought the boat and changed the oil.
No power starts
No flying
and it only had 67 true hours. No prop damage, just part of the sport.

I promise not to break if you promise.

I may call you about the parts. Thanks again.
Can't promise I won't break anything but I will promise you the first Worm Bucket when we get to the Prop Stop

That sounds more painful than breaking the boat.

I'm in, but I don't know about June 10th. I think there is another one that weekend -- either Lake Hamilton or something like that.

Clearlake is South of Houston by 30 - 45 minutes.
