My boat had a keel guard on it when I bought it. I took it off this past winter as it was holding water against the gelcoat. Best thing that I have done for the boat.

I would say little or none. I think that impeller was glad to finally die. I have it hanging on my pegboard. Will be a good reminder to always change my own.

Alistair - Let me know what you think of the 2051 prop tomorrow.

Even if the connections "look" good, go ahead and clean them anyway. It is worth it even if it doesn't cure your problem.

Agree with Cloaked, be sure to check the main engine ground. Also be sure that surfaces of the starter and where it mounts to the engine are clean so you can get a good ground path.
