I am hoping you can help to point me in the right direction on a prop issue.
I have a 13.7 x 15 LC 4 blade XMP on my 2008 MC PS197 w/powerslot and while pulling someone today at 20mph I hit a submerged piece of wood that was roughly 3" in diameter. As soon as the wood hit my hull I pulled the throttle to neutral but obviously my glide carried me over it. I jumped in the water and ran my hand along every inch of the prop and amazingly there was not a ding on it, nor was there any damage to my rudder or tracking fins. However, when I accelerate, at about 18-20mph, I feel a slight vibration back through the wheel but it seems to go away above or below that speed. When I pulled the boat out of the water I visually inspected everything and again, everything looks new without so much as a scratch.
So, my question is, could I have bent one of the blades without causing any other visual damage? If so, what do you charge to re-work this prop?
Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
