Default Throttle-up Propellers look out!

Julie, you should get a kick out of this.
Every now and then I get a customer the is Worthy of posting his story. This guy brought his pontoon boat in and said it would not get W.O.T. and was slow out the hole. He also informed me of the things that he had already tried.
He had been told by a friend (Not Julie) that his prop may be to big, now keep in mind that this was the same prop that the boat came with since new and it ran good at one time. so he made a template out of card board and cut his prop with a saw and grinder to get more RPM's, to make a long story short he had a bad coil and now a bad prop.
That's some funny sh)(&*)
