TAKE THAT DRIVE DOWN! no joke. if not the dynamic load it took, the vibration was NOT good for it! could be something as small as a seal that will result in big $ later!

sorry dude, sucks!

and yes i have no my fair share of hitting things! it's a sinking feeling...more so when u r sinking!

It definately hit something while going backwards... and pretty slow from the looks of it.

That had to happen in forward. Probably at the ramp when pulling out. That's why you didn't feel any vibration. Been there before.

X dimen -2(i believe?) not sure. Will double check. Don't believe it happened in reverse, the only time I reversed was during docking. Didn't happen lifting it up... I trim all the way up till it stops, then down a nip to take the load off. Not sure how that would even bend only three blades on the trailer without the engine on? ??

EDIT: The prop is labbed.




and yes, i hate those damn mantees in new york. Really killer.

  1. Bad news: The propshaft broke and spit the prop off.
  2. Good news: You didn't loose the prop...
  3. Bad news: ...because the prop shredded it's way into the bottom of your boat.
  4. Good news: The boat didn't sink.
  5. Etc....

That is freakin' weird.
