prop etc. gone!

6 posts in this topic

Let my kid use the boat today and they brought it back with no prop. I got a spare prop but i do not have the other pieces,there are a couple washers etc. gone. It is a 75 hp. mercury. Do these pieces come with a new prop? or can i buy just these pieces?

not sure how they lost it all but the sceg is all shined up on both sides. they say they never hit bottom but i know that aint true

I believe there is a thrust washer, a nut, and a cotter pin that you need.

Any boat dealer in the area should have these readily availiable for you. Lot's of people, myself included, have lost props and the associated hardware so this isn't an uncommon set of parts to carry on hand.

It goes-Thrust washer, prop, tab washer, lock nut.

I don't believe all the hardware comes with the prop. The prop service kit from merc is 11-31990A2 which has the thrust washer, tab washer, and lock nut.

I wouldn't know if I hit bottom unless I hit it about seven or eight times...just to be sure.

That's why I use paddles...LOL's

At least you only lost the prop. A freind put a new used 90hp outboard on his runabout over the winter. His 19 yr old daughter brought it out for the first time this past spring ... brought it back with out the lower unit - OUCH!

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
