    Nothing wrong with that prop. That's the design used for moored boats that sit on the bottom at low tides.

    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.

    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?
