Bad first day out....prop,shaft

First time out this year..

Buddy was driving and misread channel markers long story short need new prop,Strut,Prop shaft.
Rudder is fine no leaks still moves freely..has some burrs on it that can be filed off.

I plan on doing work myself.Need some advise shortcuts,etc,etc. Everthing looks straight forward... I have read getting the old strut off is a PITA.
Plan on getting all parts threw SKIDIM

Thanks

Unhappy

Benn there done that, late last summer...boating in the Chicago land area is like fishing at the fisherman's dude ranch, it's not a matter of will I, just a matter of when :-) If you get in trouble ping the guys up at MBOC ask for Tret. I'm shocked the rudder is fine given all the damage you mention. I'd be very careful, it won't take much to create a nasty vibration if something ends up out of whack.

Good Luck, that stuff ain't cheap,
George

not too hard... you'll need a ratchet strap and heat to get it off.. just be patient... a little harder in v-drive cuz if access...

While you're there... I would drop the rudder (easy) and make sure it still is true..

darn it - sorry to read this.

Check out elberts, might save you a dime or two.


Heat on the strut surface will help. I pulled the shaft out far enough to clear the log pack and then use it as a lever pulling and pushing to pop the strut off.

instead of a ratchet strap to get it off I found heat and piano wire works wonders and you do not have to worry about accidentally pulling any gel or glass if it gets really bad.

This ^^ ...........Gel and glass can come off with the component.

A similar example...same circumstances with a platform bracket
