PROP VIBRATION 'CC' AIR NAUTIQUE

Post by Mark Kuba » Sun, 07 Jun 1998 04:00:00


Just picked up the new ride, second outing crossing through a section of
the lake very slowly I hit something.  No visible damage.  A few minor
scratches to the hull (just my luck) and all four blades still in tack
but vibration is noticeable.  Can I get the prop off without buying a
prop tool?  How much will it cost to repair, bend, true, balance, etc?
Suggestions appreciated-

You can try to pull the prop with your hands and if it's newly enstalled you'd
have a chance-pull the nut off and try-you'll eventually need a puller-send the
prop to the shop for balancing and if that doesn't do it-better check the shaft
as a misalignment there will do damage quickly if not corrected.....but it's
probably the prop-good luck.

You my be able to remove the prop without any speacial tools.  Try it.  If you
can get it off, the price to get a prop conditioned is about $75.

$75 and you can haul the boat/prop to the repair shop and have them remove
it.  Don't try it without a puller!!!!!  Unless when you loosten the nut the
prop slides easily down the shaft.  (Ha and good luck)
