Different size sockets to pull the outer and inner hub.
these are thieves, not mechanics,
If you got any pictures of the hub or prop, run it by the metal scrap yards with a reward sign. They track everyone now with photo id and picture of tag from vehicle that brought scrap in.
I work off clark rd a lot so will keep my eye out at pawn shops too.

Man that sucks.... My grandpa is over off old bradenton rd. by the airport. Has been there since the late 40's. He has a big yard that has fence all the way around it that stays locked. Long story short is we can't keep anything there anymore. He has had everythig from chain saws, four wheelers, and ever his two catch dogs stolen.

We thought we had a way to keep them from stealing the four wheelers, but we were wrong. We would put them on the 35' dove tail goose neck trailer with the ramps up, the trail back aginst a wall so they could drop the gates, and a logging chain through the frames and around the goose neck. Now mind you the deck is a good 4' off the ground. Well the cut the lock on the gate into the yard, cut the chain(must of had some huge bolt cutters to do that), and they had to have had some kind of ramp to get them off the side of the trailer. Well they got 3 four wheels that night and of 3 we got 2 back over 6 months, but one had ben slammed into a tree so hard it was a total loss. Hopefully they got F%#ked up real good when they wreaked it. They found both right off MLK by the railroad tracks...... If my grandpa ever catches one of them in the act I feel sorry for them. He sleeps with a loaded 12ga next to his bed.

Anyway I hope you find your prop, check the pawn shops at least once a week if you can. The ones on 15 st in oneco seem to be the big ones. One thing is for sure, I'm going to try and find a place east of 75 when I get back from overseas in Aug. Thoughj I doubt it will help keep the theives at bay.

I hate to hear of people getting things stolen. There are some low life people in this world. Hope that you prop will show back up. I can't stand people with sticky fingers. I will keep a eye out around Seminole county. Sorry about your loss.

Sorry about the prop. I live near Clark Rd and work up by the airport. Keep my eyes and ears open. As Bigjake said "Oneco" around the corner from me, I know what he means.

And I am not trying to "Monday Morning Quarterback"..... I am so sorry that a LOW LIFE got your prop... Instead of airboating.. 1 WEEKEND.. I took the money and bought a WildGame Innovations IR4 game camera for $79 at Bass Pro...... The camo camera was WELL HID around the boat in the back yard.. It takes color photos, IR night photos, and video.. Up to 2000 pic on a 2 gig card... A photograph of the thief will most always lead to identification of suspect...

Again, there is nothing I hate more than a thief !!! And hope they get nabbed and get spanked real hard !!! But I could not let that much money sit without some type of camera, and that was the best I could come up with.. Never had anyone try to steal anything, but always cought the FP&L Meter Reader, so I know it would have got great photos of the thiefs..........

Hope you get you prop back buddy !!!!!!!
