Got a prop thanks to the airboat community . Made it back under power. Everyone safe and sound.

It's amazing how the Airboating Community comes to the rescue when the call goes out. From everyone in the Marsh helping to Rich Motes "skinnypockets" donating parts and props.

I got a prop to get out of the swamp, thanks to skinnypockets :salute:
Now I am looling to find 2 used Q series blades. I looked thru the classifieds
with no luck. I'm open to using other DD blades if they fit my hub.
Any help is appreciated :thumbleft:

Sorry about that, I got stuck on some dry and got out and put the wife in the drivers seat did some rake shaking and she got to the water and stopped to let me in. As I was climbing in the drivers seat a boat that came off the dry and hit the skinny water and just kept sliding and hit my rudders and pushed one into the prop. Maybe 5mph, as I was climbing in I saw it coming
(in slow motion) but couldn't do anything :banghead:

Thanks and I guess that's the reason I try to stay away from other boats, glad nobody was hurt. :thumbleft: :rebel:

Like Steve said, amazing how the airboating community pulls together to help fellow airboaters out. I wasn't able to make it up there Friday to witness the carnage, but the Wife and I met them up there Saturday morning, and they already had Kyle's boat up and running to where we were able to ride all day Saturday. Had a great time, great bunch of guys and gals!

Kyle glad you guys are ok! :thumbleft:

Can you submit an insurance claim on your damaged prop?

Call Don at Sensenich here in Plant City ..... he sometimes has lightly used stuff at a very fair price.
Somebody might have bought something from him and wanted more so he traded it in.

On my last boat I was wanting a little more push and a lower cruise RPM so I talked to him and he swapped the hub on my 3 blade 72" Q for a 2" extended prop hub. It dropped my cruise by a little over 200 RPM on plane and made a bigtime difference in my gas mileage.
They're very nice folks over there. :thumbleft:
