Ongoing Refit

Go for a swim anyone?

We sent out our propeller last Thursday for testing and balancing. The hope is that an out of whack propeller is causing our shaft vibration issue. It was really good to hear that Coastal Prop Technology found all three blades set at different pitches rather than perfectly matched. They are currently adjusting the propeller for us and hopefully it will be done by Thursday.

A local marine repair guy pulled the prop off by wearing goggles and holding his breath in the cola colored water of the marina. He is a braver man than me as there are gators in these waters. This morning one of those critters was swimming around directly behind our boat. Gee, I think I'll pay that brave repair guy to re-install that prop when it comes back.

  1. Out of balance is not good. Btw, I hear that PBR will keep gators away! Really!! I'm sure you have an ample supply on board! :)
