Default OUCH! Wounded or dead. DEAD.

Wednesday: Just finished lunch in Naples and back out on the gulf, smiling and cruising at 80 mph. Suddenly the whole boat was shaking. Shut it down and this is what we found.

4 blade, 17.5 x 31 for #6. Anybody have one? Need one so we can do the fun run this weekend.

Actually a set of 17.5 x 32's would be better.

They say things look different in the daylight. Well, this is like going to bed with a fat ugly chick. In the mornng, she is still fat and ugly.

Have you checked with JT at TNT? He usually has several props on hand.

Yep, he has 17 x 31's. They would get me through the weekend. The boat with the 17.5 x 31's is actually underpropped.

Dennis if your boat was tucked safely away for winter storage like your friends boats back east are, you would not have this type of problem Like Rog said boating in salt water is rough, especially all year long

Seriously I hope the power of OSO works for you and you are back on the water in no time
