Well, after removing the oyster trap things, took about a half hr ish. It was clear the prop was torn up. And can be repaired, but in the mean time, just getting an extra is the way to go so we have two. But the prop on the boat I don’t think is a Chris Craft prop with a number HH5338 15×14 on a larger shaft. it measures 1 3/8. I will say this prop size and pitch performs very well. What’s interesting though is that something as simple looking as a shaft and prop can be so complex. So today, we can talk propellers. Or better yet, prop disasters!
Todays header is of Suzy on Sunday morning after being left over night after she towed us in at 11Pm. What a morning. I had tried out WECATCHEM to see how bad the prop was. And turned the ipone and bam! As a side note, that little trip lost me a nut on the shaft. So what must have happened is that in the mess, the cotter pin was trashed and the nut came off. WECATCHEM is now in the barn after a slow run to the trailer.
