Hi Folks, I was cruising through a gut Saturday, against a heavy tide, lots of lobster bouys. Didn't see one half underwater. Hit the poly foam bouy with propeller, hard enough to carve a few pieces from it. Got back on the mooring, tried to dive it today with a swim mask....I learned the following: 1. At 59 I'm too old and too poor a swimmer to try crap like that again. Even with a line strung gunnel to gunnel to pull my stupid ass out, it still thoroughly scared me. I think actually having to cut a stray line off the shaft would be a good way for me to drown. 2. Fortunately, there was no line on the shaft, I could see that much, however, no way to tell if any of the blades were bent. The boat sounds and feels exactly at all speeds the same. I have a 5 blade prop with a 2" shaft a MuscleRidge 28. At this point, I'll probably put another 25- 30 hours on before late October haul. Should I "day haul" and check or run out the season? So bummed, I just had Nautillus tweek the perfect propeller last winter. As always, Thank you all for your advice!
