The Spare Prop Sagaby George & Dorothy Peter on 10/03/17
Over the past 25 years we have had several conversations with our boaters. The one that never gets old is the "Spare Prop" suggestion. We believe every boater should have spare props for their boat.
Props are like tires. Imagine going on a road trip. You pack your clothes, some food. Check your oil and such. Wouldn't you also check your spare tire. What if you get a flat and you are in the middle of nowhere. That spare tire and the proper tools to change it can save your road trip.
A spare prop is the same. If you are our out in the middle of the lake and you hit a log and throw a blade, your boating trip and vacation is pretty much over. You can try to idle all the way to shore, hook your boat up to the trailer and bring us your damaged prop. Or you can put on your spare prop and enjoy the rest of your day. Most props can be replaced right in the water (just don't drop anything in the lake). Of course it is always safer to bring the boat ashore and replace the prop. When your boating trip is over, stop by the shop with the damaged prop and we'll get in rotation for repair.
Having a spare prop(s) and hardware is the smarter way to go for any boater. It's convenient, time saving and helps prevent ruined vacations on the lake.
