Picked up parts in the bildge of a friends Fountain with a snow shovel once after an engine catoed at WOT.

A few dents but nothing nearly coming close to perferation of the hull.

Just to get this off track again.

If it did not go through a Foutain then it won't go through anything

Since it was a fountain you needed the snow shovel, if it had been anything else all the parts would have collected in the BOTTOM of the "V".

Lost a blade twice on my B1 props during the summer of 2003. One time the whole blade, the other about half. Vibrates like a MOFO!
Had to idle back both times. The first time it happened I reached down and felt it, the next time I could see it. BOTH were warrantied by Merc
