Winterized my Black Thunder in Oct. and sent the props out to be reworked. Later on I realized that I had not pumped out the holding tank. It was full and I could not just put antifreeze in the tank. Had to wait 3 weeks for the props to come back, drive 3 1/2 hours one way, put the boat in the water, pump out the head, and re-winterize. Then the trailer brakes quit working just to give me a winter project. Two more trips and the brake issue is fixed and the rig will go to TMP in LA in Dec for winter maintenance. Joe Murray

Joe - Sounds to me like you were looking for a good excuse to try out the prop's.
Mind if I use that one sometime?
