    Nothing wrong with that prop. That's the design used for moored boats that sit on the bottom at low tides.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Maybe he didn't hit anything. Could have been plain ol' stress failure.....doubtful, but maybe. I'd like to look at the "new" surface.
    Which ever one(s) of you little boys complained about quotes in the signature should be ashamed of yourself. :blowkiss

    Instead of complaining to the moderators you should just quit playing on this board.

    Do you mean fatigue failure?

    Looks like the blade before it hit something.

    Yep, like fatigue failure. Can't see on either edge where it was "nicked", like it hit something.

    Possibly the blade in front of it when it broke or sheared off

    Am guessing some sort of nefarious underwater b-b-b-buzz saw (that didn't like you) to cut that blade so clean and straight?

    If he hit something wouldn't more than one be damaged?

    The one right below is bent also,The other prop was bent really bad,I just did'nt take a picture.The prop shop said its toast a new one is close to 5 grand.They came off a 70ft Sunseeker.It happens all the time you should see some of the bent props I take to the shop its really an art form to repair them blacksmithing guys with big hammers and heat,if you have never seen it done its quite the show just wear ear plugs.

    Bobcats will do that.

    Well, anyone who's dumb enough to let a bobcat drive their 70 foot boat deserves what he gets.
