Stock prop had a blade tear off over a couple rotations; and it chopped the end of the drive shower off, as well as a few slices through the anode/cavitation plate.
My GF was driving at the time; and she hates it when I blame her for it.

I had a small bolt back out of the cone clutch assembly in a Bravo drive. It turned the inside of the drive/fluid to "applesauce" was the tech's description. No pics of that one.

I'll try to find pics of the drive that was hanging on by the steering rams several years ago as well. The outer helmet housing snapped in two across the top, from pivot point to pivot point. I got lucky on that one and did not even tear the bellows.

A couple years back, in a friend's boat; we snagged a steel cable crab trap on the KW Poker Run. The steel cable went between the prop and the drive, and ripped the anode off--around the prop shaft. When the anode came out, it tore the drain plug out of the drive, sideways. That will ruin a drive real quick too.

1.- Blown drive Miami Boat Show Poker Run 2010. One of three that year which prompted the IMCO upgrade.

2.- Marina cracked the corner of a step off on my previous boat loading it on and off the rack. Thought it was fixed, repair popped and caused this damage. This was then fixed right by our own Glassdave and it came out better than new!

I keep this on my desk as a reminder how a 50 dollar part can stop my boat dead in its tracks...people that come in my office always ask about it. it's my humbler.
