but it could of been much worse.
So after a long long day on the water Saturday I load up and go out again today because I promised my 17 year old daughter she could invite a bunch of her girlfriends out for some tubing and skiing. The day was going great, the girls were having a blast and I wasn't even stressed out dealing with eight 17 and 18 year old young ladies (they were great and a pleasure to have on board). So we are running along, 2 of the girls were tubing and all of a sudden we hear the dreaded bang and then a metallic sound...... I hit neutral right away, kill the motor and make sure the girls are OK. Girls are fine so now I'm worried about my girl, trim the motor up to see how bad things are and I only find a slightly bent prop blade. The lower unit looks good, no marks or abrasions. Thank goodness I have an aluminum prop on. So we putt our way back to the boat ramp (no spare prop) and that was the end of boating for the day.
So here are my questions; First, what else should I check to verify all is OK and second, where is a good place to buy (2) new props? The current one on my lady, (Spirit-n-Sky) finial named her, is a 14 1/2 by 19. Not sure if it is OEM.
