Buying a prop!

Just ordered a replacement from Steel Developments.

Should get it Wednesday or Thursday so are the 'Jackeens' out this weekend?

Pete

Oh, Manos, yes, black is the 'in colour' as my new prop is painted black! & matches my boat just right!

What happened to your prop at the weekend, Pete?

Petes Adventures!

Quote: What happened to your prop at the weekend, Pete?

A little story.

Well, whilst I was launching the boat from the Haslar slip on Saturday, the wind, which was 'fairly brisk', tried to push me onto the rocks beside it!!! It did actually spin me about 60 degrees as I backed off & I must have hit the rocks on the other side of the slip (these are underwater & couldn't be seen).
I didn't at that point know I'd hit anything - 'honest officer'!!!

Then went past some great big ship with the navy on top having a parade & getting fairly damp (saps!) I waved at them, wearing a black diving suit & ski goggles in a totally black boat at 20+ knots.
I'll swear someone waved back!

At this point Paul was trying to inspect his anchor whilst Kathleen was doing 20 knots! - Kathleen mentioned ballast to me later

However, on the trip out to the Cafe (don't know where it is) I was getting a bit of cavitation & was losing drive over some waves.. this was making the journey quite interesting!! Good thing it was only a little choppy

Still got to the cafe fine...

Took a quick look at it in the harbour whilst moored up & I was 'missing' bits of it - quite large bits.
Suspect it started to break up a touch on the way?

Still back home we go & whilst still in the harbour (behind the lock) it was sounding funny & then cut out

Quickly got it restarted, & let it warm up a bit then went into the lock.
Paul jumped out (needed the toilet I believe due to his age) &
smooth talked (gift of the Irish) us all out of the lock without PAYING!!! - Think the man (harbour master) said to him something about meeting us at a place with bed, 3 square meals & nurses there?
Oh, also mentioned the weather thingy was saying F8, gusting F9.
What tosh, Kathleens hair dryer is more powerful

Setting out of the lock it seems for some reason I was getting a'lot' of cavitation heading into the seas. This meant that staying at 10-20 knots was fairly difficult (6-10Kts being about my limit - must be slowing down in my old age)

Anyway eventually got back to the marina after a few waves had gone over my boat (hurrah for a bilge pump) Thanks Richard & Paul for shadowing me on the way back!!

Thats my little trip with Blue Ice (is nice) & Zebedee (bounces quite well)

Pete

I guess that was Port Solent you went to. It's the only Marina around here that has a loch/k.

Yeh that slip is a little tricky. I have a little confession though............

With all you guys down here at the weekend I felt a little envious and on travelling home from work, noon Sat. I took the scenic route and stopped off at the slip. No one there so I just drove home along the coast Rd.

Violins aside though! I was busy all weekend and didn't know what I was doing, so rather make plans and break them, I opted for not making them at all.

It would be great to do something similar later in the year.

A change of job is needed to free up some of my time...One thinks

Andy

Paul, Kathleen,

if we keep on getting weekends like the last one I'll never get my flipping rib in the water.

I'll tell you a little story:

Last Sunday I took the cover off Kohaku to replace a few bits and peices and left it off when I went shopping for some nic-nacs. On the way home it rained like cats and dogs and on my return the wife said "I tried to cover the boat because it rained but the tarpaulin was too heavy for me, I'm afraid your boat got wet dear!"

Andy

No, that's far too low for a RIB appreciating wife.

£100.

Come to think of it... she's really under-valued.

A round grand should be the opening bid

those who know my penchant for hitting props will realise that I've gone for an Alloy prop in the size - 13 1/4 x 15.

This is what I've got on at the moment & although a S/S prop looks & perform well, you do not want to touch anthing with it !!

May also get a 13 1/4 x 17. Any ideas what this will do for me?

Pete
