    Default Mew mojo 2.5 with issue. Looking for opinions.

    New guy here but not new to direct/ v drives. I purchased the boat from a dealer today and it was sold to me as demo green and white brochure boat with 55.5 hours. Make it to the water tonight throw it in and vibrates plus wont plane. Then have water filling in the boat so I head back in and put It back on the trailer.

    Figure its got a bent prop. Get it on the trailer and sure enough props been hit twice. So I do some more looking to see if the shafts bent and find rub marks around the hull like the shaft had failed or who knows what. Never seen anything like this before. Here are some pictures. What do you guys think the one marks are from? Or are they common? I assume not but I do not know what could have caused them other then a shaft failure. Can also see where the prop has hit the trailer in the one image.

    Plan to be at the dealer in the am to try and resolve the issue but would like some opinions on the other damage.

    I am guessing you didn't take a test drive before buying?

    No. Was 5:30 by the time we got to going over the boat. They did offer to put it in the water as we hooked it to my vehicle to leave though.

    They had to know the boat had this damage done to it prior to selling it to you,pretty shady on the dealers part,they would be fixing this for free of charge or the sale would be voided and I would get my money back.

    Maybe the dealer and the salesman did not now. Who knows who had the boat out last. I have a little guy that works for me, his name is Not Me. He breaks stuff all the time and just puts it away. I would be an employee named Not Me used the boat and put back on the trailer for the next one to find the damage.
    Congrats on your new Mojo, I know my dealer and SC would make it right and hope yours does the same.

    I hope all goes well this morning at the dealer but will see. They said they never had this boat in the water at the end of our dealings. Now that I think back I think they knew but then again how hard would it have been to fix the issue before selling the boat. If it's just the prop and shaft packing needing repaired that's a fairly easy fix on a 60k+ boat before it goes out to ensure there are no problems with a sale.

    What do you guys think about the marks at the hull? Do you think the shaft failed on the boat or are they from something else? The bolts and hose clams look to have never been touched so I don't really know what else could have done it. Maybe they sucked up a rope?

    I would guess that a log or something got caught on the prop and then struck the hull causing all of the damage.

    I'm not a dealer, but if that is THE brochure boat, I would not have water tested it either.

    Dealer should fix it as long as you didn't put several hours on the boat.

    Maybe a tow rope got wrapped up in there and sucked the handle thru.

    About all I can think of is a rope got up in there. As for the prop I am positive it hit the trailer at least once. I even looked at the prop when buying to ensure I was getting the upgrade but did not see the curl or the mark on the trailer when I was under there.

    I was told as a selling point it is the boat from the videos and brochure. If that's good or bad I really don't know.

    I purchased it with 55.5 hours and now it shows 55.7.
