Man that is harsh. Boating is expensive enough anymore then that stuff has to happen . Sorry for your loss .

Jeff

The reason it sounds like a death is the out of pocket costs would kill me.

Talking

Same thing happened to me running at 110 mph across biscayne bay,Islamorada poker run,lose 5 blade across from the nuke plant.never thought to jump overboard and use the breadcrumb trail on the gps to retrieve it.Cost me 3k plus killed my weekend.I used brand new nylocks and locktight.I would be afraid to drill the end of a 6 shaft,They should change the design though.

No luck yet Bro.

What race class uses one engine? Maybe we should post a Wanted
in that section.

SICK STINGER is got a diver going Sunday. I used the bread crumb
trail on my GPS to get some accurate coordinates.

I,m going to use the 40, Herrings for now.

Oh yeah Dave Scott may have something.

what about a metal detector ,I will call the CO that ours came from and ask if it will pick up ss prop????, ours is good for 6 feet under ground so maybe more in water. I think I can put the ring just under and it might work. artie ps jerry just went and got the old ladys oil changed, and now getting my mon a new tire

How deep was the water? Were you moving when it came off?

hey jon it must of came off when we backed up from the sportfisher out side the channel 8' outside then slopes to 20 in at low tide. but the 1st diver could only see 2' straight down. not like boston harbor where you can see 10 to 15 now, they have done a great job of cleaning it over 22yrs. I wish providence harbor was like that and this was at the end of it.
