Big thanks to Plum and Water Walker!

Post by D-BREWSTER »

Plum showed me around the shop then took us to the lake to try different props on my new boat. A cut-down custom 74 inch. 'Power-Plus and a new 'Signature Series' You dont get no better customer service then a guy who will come to the lake in the heat of the day and try several props then sit there and wait while you go ride and try them in till its perfect and your happy.. Then when I cant make my mind up on which one I like best tell ya " Hell take both and go run'em for awhile then bring me back the one you dont want later!" Plum is TOP NOTCH and Water Walker couldnt have a better man and family running the shop! Thanks bro , it means alot!.. Very happy customer and I highly recommend them..

I also had great experience. Walked in their door on a Friday at 2:00, needing a replacement blade. Had me taken care of and on my way within an hour. And I didn't call ahead. And very impressed with the low end push of the falcon series prop. :thumbleft:

The crew at water walker leave no room for complaints. Haven't heard anyone say anything but good stuff about them. My own personal experiences with them are no different.

Great people
Great products

X2 on Plum being good people...been around him quite a bit over the years.

Great move for Water Walker to put him on IMO.

thanks ; all of us here at water waker have worked very hard for a year to get the company here and back running smooth
it was a challenge for us all... but it has been a labor of love... David Wine created the first carbon composite prop nearly 20 years ago
and he pretty much hit the nail on the head for static thrust... so me coming onboard here and leaving my former bissiness behind was a no brainer... Andrew mcd is a very intellengent young fellow and a broward county airboater since he could walk good,, and can do things on a computer that make my head hurt , we have some neat things in the works for the future .. and as far as me bolting props on on the edge of kissimee after lunch on a wed .... well what could ya ask for 8)

I'm glad I was able to help with the move from Colorado to Florida. Wine has really made a great turn around with Water Walker in acquiring Andre McD and Plum. Too notch guys. Glad to see things coming along. My cypress is running strong and keeping little "hot rod" fast. Lol...

Watching all the kudos for Water Walker, sounds impressive but still just tire kicking. I hope you guys get some time to work on your web site.. I know talking to somebody is the best way to get information but when your just flipping around the the internet it would nice to see some better descriptions, characteristics and generalizations regarding your props as well as maby prices. You have got my attention though! 8) K found HP and price :roll: s.. Ya gotta admit you click on signature series and see nothing but blanks, expect to see something like you have for Cypress series. Just saying. Don't see a Power Plus on the site either?

I have run their Power plus blades, Falcons, Maximus, and now i'm running a Cypress series on my little 4 cyl rig. I have been very happy with the performance of their products. And having Plum on board their team can only make things even better.

my first airboat [4cl lycoming] had some 'shorty' power plus blades and then some cypress series blades.
my second boat [454 bbc]had 3 power plus blades.
my third boat [gpu] has some older whirlwind blades, and runs well, but eventually i plan on trying 2 signature series blades on it.

i've never had a problem with water walker. or any other prop manufacturer for that matter.

Have you seen the link from SA to Water Walker and it's info for it's props? That young fellow makes all our heads hurt with a pretty much empty website? I got a new mini coming online and i'm not a plant city resident or California so my purchase is still up in the air to what i can get fixed asap to avoid down time!
