Weird Things on your Prop

Recommended Posts

crom

We were out tubing today and everything is going great when all of a sudden the bu starts to shudder and vibrate! All sorts of worst case scenarios are running through my head: engine trouble, tranny trouble, you name it. Then I think prop! We are out in the middle off the lake so I know I didn't hit bottom, but I figure I will go check it out. And guess what I found? A freakin ball cap wrapped up around my prop! Just pulled it off and away we went. Had a laugh after about it. Biggrin.gif

I've pulled part of a tree we hit off one of the blades once.

My friend was driving, and I had just come up on <ahem> a kneeboard and he killed the engine. I'm like wtf? He said the boat just started shuttering. So, I swim under and start feeling around and there was a branch fully stuck on one of the blades. Pulled it off, examined for dings - all clear. Started riding again w/o incident.

Haven't had anything around my prop. I have hit a 2x8 peice of lumber at about 30 mph. The lake had a bunch of junk in it and I heard a clunk and the boat lost power. Dove in the water and checked the prop and the shaft and everything was alright. Then I tried to pull away and at about 10mph the boat started shaking violently and lost all speed. We crept back to the dock at 5-10 mph and took it out the next morning. We found a 2x8 jammed into one of the fins. Everything ended up fine but it sure scared us.

A friend of mine hit a Beaver. We didn't know what we hit, then the water turned red and the tail was floating.

Last year we took a friend tubing, at one point the screaming was louder then usual. We immediately stopped to learn she lost IT! ( so it might be hers, send some pics :) ). I could not stop laughing for a very long time, just typing this makes me smile.

Yup. Nothing like getting a good piece of tail after spotting a beaver.

Actually, now that I think about it, my wife once had to go in the water to remove the rope and buoy from a crab pot.

We were ripping across Shasta last year and developed a shutter that turned out to be a 5 gallon bucket.
