Ya, good advice. I have been pretty lucky I guess. Have just dinged up a prop twice in 30 years of boating. I boat in lakes only and stay away from the shoreline...........;)

I feel you brother!! Even though my money didn't got to Eric, it went to someone... :(

Of course I have never hit anything in the water (knock on wood). Its my stupid aftermarket trailer!! :mad: A few inches left or right and its hitting steel.

Yikes, sure wouldn't want to try that in a cross wind.

Sorry to hear about the prop onejdgreen - are the strut/shaft ok?

Strut and shaft are ok. Crappy boat ramp + strong cross wind + crappy help loading = the results of my prop.

Ouch... I'm sure the cash is going to a good cause.

Yeah at a crappy ramp with no help I have learned it is better to look like a fool and walk chest deep into the water and pull the boat onto the trailer than to try to come in and risk hitting one of the 5 jet skis or pontoon boats that are tied to the ramp dock for no good reason.

When windy or in a current, I have my wife drive the boat on about 3/4 of the way and then I hook it to the winch and winch it in. That pulls the boat up straight and no need to run the prop near the trailer. On calm days we just drive it up ...........

Mine looked about the same as well. It was fixed and is now my spare. Needed a spare anyways. There is always a bright side.
