Thread: Do you carry a spare prop?

LOL - sorry. Just had a mental picture in my head I had to fulfill of wrenches, nuts, props gliding down to a sandy/muddy tomb with some guy frantically swimming after them.
My buddy actually launched his boat one time without the prop on it. Pushed off the dock, stuck it in gear, wouldn't move. Wife was looking at him all in a panic. Started drifting away. He thought the tranny was shot. Got a wave runner to nudge him back over to the dock. About halfway there it dawned on him - the freshly repaired prop was sitting in a box in the back of his SUV up in the parking lot. Good thing too as I thought they (and all their damned kids) were going to have to join us and that would have made for 12 on the boat all day...
I suppose I would be wise to bring my old prop along on some of our week long trips. Starting next year anyway. Any one know where the best price is for a prop puller? Need to add that to my Christmas list.At the time it seemed like a good idea...
