CUDA sounder /fishfinder 69 on compass24- cheap and works fine. Then you'll know how just deep it is-just after you hit the bottom

In my opinion, if you know that you will not hit anything the go stainless, but if there is an element of doubt go for an ally prop.

I now have 2 stainless prop and I am very scared of hitting anything.

Gearbox failure - Alex

Hi Alex
Good to see you and the family last week, a good BBQ.
I was not allowed out on the Friday - so hope you had a good day none the less!
I had a failure of the gearbox coming back from the BIBOA Fowey cruise.
Without hitting anything.
I have had a whole new bottom end fitted as Suzuki did'nt have all the required individaul parts in the UK. And the dealer I was closest to had also never rebuilt one...which sounded like a recipe for disaster.
Having now learnt that you had a gearbox problem, following a coming together was it rebuilt or replaced. when was this?
I was just about to write to Suzuki as the unit was 1 month outside the warranty - so to know the picture now would help and avoid potential time wasting with Suzuki.

Thanks
PAul

Paul,

The lower end was rebuilt by Challenger Marine in Falmouth in September 2003. They were a Suzuki dealer at the time, but in 2004 they lost it and it went to IBS who you know.
