I hope you're kidding. I doubt you are, but man, there is more $$ in broken propellers on this project than Pool has in the engines. (Not really, but DAMN!!!)

thanks for comming to get me in the middle of the lake and taking me to get another set of props..

on a good note, the titanium props did handle running around for a little while at 1130 ft lb setting.. then we turned the boost up and they broke... but these were just a test set to experiment with. the next set will probably be stronger..

Is this not a harmonics issue, how do the turbine boats hold the power without blowing props apart, just trying to understand???
