I Just Bought A 1993 Prostar 205, The Previous Owner Said At One Time His Prop Hit The Bottom While The Boat Was Just Sitting By The Beach, He Said That The Prop Was Bent And He Sent It To A Local Guy Here And Had It Repaired! I Took The Boat Out And There Is A Vibration, I Did A Prop Shaft Alignment To .002, I Can Spin The Prop With One Finger No Problem, But Still Have The Vibration! Could The Prop Be Unbalanced? I Also Noticed That One Of The Rear Feat (tranny Mount) Bolts Were Loose And Backing Out, This Bolt Was Slightly Bent And Would Not Tighten, Took It Out To Get A Replacement But Have Not Done That Yet! Any Suggestions?

If you can spin the prop that easily, the bushing in the strut may be worn out. Any slop there?

no slop at all! I guess i should say that i can spin it with one finger but i do have to put a little strenght behind it!

Include your name, return address and a daytime telephone number with the prop.
