Only if it's repairable. If a blade is bent at the hub, it's probably not repairable. Still usable as a backup - a slow boat is better than no boat...

He doesn't need to - he's already got the workout equipment. Just needs to drive it more! Three times a week with hour long sessions should get him in great shape by next spring!

First off, what's the size of the new prop? Is it the same 14x18 as you originally had? Is it the same manufacturer?

Second, sit down and look at the prop. Damage that's enough to cause the...

I've got the standard clamp, in great shape, that I need to replace with the B204V v-drive clamp. I was planning on doing that this winter; maybe we can work something out.

The initial steps (2-9) are a one-time-in-the-life-of-the-boat alignment meant to establish that the transmission coupler is directly pointed at the strut. According to Mastercraft, you don't need...

It'll take about an hour or two the first time you do it - maybe 20 minutes the second time.

Take a look at it in your boat, and see how easy it is to get to it - can you slide the packing nut far...

Gorilla glue works fine in water.

Unfortunately, nothing glues Teak well without good preparation. See this (http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/gluing-oily-tropical-hardwoods/) page.

No, probably just that the strut bearing or shaft log is dry. If you're concerned, run the hose on the propshaft at the strut and turn it again - the groaning will probably go away.

Craigslist.

Seriously. Just bought a brand-new Liquid Force Angel 134 with bindings for $150 as a boat board for that weight range. I just won't tell the boys that it's a girl's board.

Is this the zerk fitting that injects grease into the rudder box? That's the only one that greases the rudder box, so it's good to replace it if it's bad.

Don't, however, replace the zerks on the...

That's a Teak swim deck; but it looks like it's had a hard life. When sanded down and oiled, they look beautiful. Mine, on the other hand, looks a lot like yours.

Jumping out of a plane is infinitely more interesting than indoors skydiving. I'd say do it - find a place that does tandem jumps from 10000+.
