    Default Do you carry a spare prop?

    Just wondering how many of you keep a spare with you on the boat just in case. I always did in my old I/O boats but a spare aluminum prop wasn't too expensive. I don't have one now but would feel more comfortable with an extra.

    I keep a spare in my truck, would suck if you had to wait around for a repair, the prop repair shops are really busy during the summer. May take a few weeks.. upgrade to a better prop and keep the old one..

    Definitely want a spare prop - and a puller - and train yourself on how to use the puller - before you need it. It is nto complicated but it helps to understand the process if you ahve never done it before. Maybe not in the boat - - but in the truck. We live on lake so have one in garage.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

    I sure do now after the low NorCal water level put a ding in my 1617.

    I bought a new prop and puller (SOO Easy!! Just watch the videos), had the 1617 repaired by ACME and am now going to sell it as I went to a 14.5" diameter prop and am going to try a different one based on ACME's suggestion.

    Don't forget to throw a short 2x4 in with the prop puller and grab an extra key and cotter pin.

    I don't carry one but have a spare. 5 minutes to the launch ramp so if I dinged a prop, either end of the day or a quick trip home depending on time.

    I carry a OJ Just In Case set, keeps everything in one place. Pack it in the TV with the 4 way lung wrench and the jack.
