    thrown prop-gctid819735

    what could it be?took the boat out today and was putting along fine and next thing i know it sounded like i threw a prop. put in neutral and realized the prop is still there. put it back in gear and could only keep it at 4-5mph otherwise it would feel like you lost your prop. i have a vp-280 outdrive. I would appreciate any input on what this could be. Thank you

    Your prop is spun, need to replace the prop. The old one might still be repairable, check with propeller shop.

        Same thing recently happened to me for the first time...I had kept the original prop and the needed tools onboard as a "back-up". The "Admiral" originally said when I was gearing up the boat for the season, "that takes up space and adds weight". When I spun the prop while out on the water and grabbed my "space taking extra weight" I reminded her of her comment. I jumped in the water, changed the prop and we were in our way in about 15 mins.....man that was GREAT rest of the day !!
