She doesn't stay in the water when you're out does she?
Surely there must be some sort of tilt mech on her.

Love the video. Not quite the way unthought they would have been made.

Most propellors have a rubber bush. That is to take the impact and protect your gearbox.

Race props often don't have a rubber bush and we have to start engines in gear and have engines off when changing direction otherwise the gearboxes don't last very long.

I have stainless on just about everything I drive and I have yet to blow a gearbox.

I was about to ask........whilst the advice was invaluable and correct for the likes of myself, has anybody actually suffered g'box issues as a result of clipping and are there shearshafts available to protect?

One RIB to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Moyle where the Shadows lie.

Friend of mine made shite of a stainless prop on a pier with his Suzi 115. Divil the bit of harm it did his shaft, although I'd say he had a sudden tensing of the sack when the prop drilled in...

Buy a prop with a plastic flo-torq hub, if you do hit anything the hub is sacrificial. Oh and carry a spare hub onboard
