Sorry to hear about your loss, our condolences to your family.  Weather is delaying our start.  When it stops raining we will try to get in the road.  Weather report for Rathbun isn't much better.

I'll be stopping by with the family in tow, as we'll all be nearby anyway.  Then coming Saturday afternoon to camp.

We're crazy busy this weekend, so having to make some sacrifices this year.  I'm still trying ti get the cvz hooked up and running!

Brandon - Want to do some prop testing tomorrow & Saturday AM?  These won't handle Tim's HP, but for our puny engines I've come to really like them.

I have the Gil Six Gun composite in pitch 17, 19 & 21, also the Piranha 3 Blade 'Hydrobite' prop with the flow 'fences' in pitch 21 & 23.  I have the 4 Blade Piranha on Goldie in 20 & 22p. 

So, that's 7 combinations you could test on Saturday if you wanted. 

David, think you could get a polish on them?  LOL  (Probably!)

I never have polished a composite prop before. Bet Mothers Aluminum and Alloy Polish would work.

Honestly, I wonder if that would do anything?  Suppose sharpening the blades couldn't hurt...but they're not really a high performance propeller anyway.

Though it was cloudy, yesterday, it was a nice day on the water.
Little wet this morning...
