    Yeah, I actually hurt my hand the first time surfing with that prop... I had a very lazy grip and wasn't ready for how strong the boat could pull. For the first time, I've actually started asking the driver to give me less than 100% out of the hole. You'll definitely be able to tell the difference.

    Default Damaged prop?!? How Bad?

    So they can't get my prop removed. They have broke 2 prop pullers and used heat no luck. Saying they are going to have to pull the shaft!!!! OMG I'm sick right now.

    Probably a good thing though brutha - sounds like you may be fixing more than one problem at once vs throwing a new prop on thinking you're all good and then finding out later that you're sooooo not.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    wonder if the key is bent and sandwiched between the prop and the shaft outside it's slot. Thought someone else had a key problem also. Good luck, hope they get it soon.

    Pulling the shaft is not that difficult (once you get the friggin bolts out of the collar-- nylock nuts and no room for a ratchet in there so you have to use two wrenches and wrench all the way off. PITA) But the shaft will slip right out of the dripless seal and the strut. Although they may have to remove the rudder too if the prop is still on there.

    You may be better off in the long run. About half the time or more if the strike is bad enough to damage the prop the shaft is not true anymore. You probably need a shaft as well. Expect to hear that news next.

    You were correct. They just called and said they want to cut the shaft off to remove it. I will need a new shaft and new prop. So looks like im down for the weekend. They have to order a shaft.

    I would price Elbert's. Might save you some money. No idea why they don't stock the shaft for the LSV. I mean, come on.

    Right now I'd just pick the boat up and do it myself. Get it done faster and save money. Order the new prop online too cuz you don't need it till the shaft is in.

    They want $600 (ACME 1235) + $360 (Shaft) + Labor $300

    I dont have anything to cut the old shaft off with. So I am leaning towards letting them do it. Plus, replacing the shaft seems difficult. Hardest thing ive done on mine is replace the steering cable and new water impellor pump.

    Well, for starters, if you are going to throw away the prop and shaft you can heat and beat just a little to try to get it off. Have to be careful though so you don't beat up the v-drive at the other end or hurt the strut. I think they don't wanna remove the rudder so they are talking about cutting the shaft. I'd take the rudder out of the way myself if I couldn't get the prop off-- but to each his own.
