When we went out with them we actually got my son out on his first surf (he just turned 2 in June) and he loved it. I took him out twice and then every time I surfed after that he would try to climb out with me saying "I surf with daddy". It definitely made me smile! Now I just need to get my daughter who is 4 to start surfing with me but every time I ask she says "not today" LOL. Anyways here is a video my wife took of my son and I surfing.

    That is awesome. She will get out there. Just tell her that her little brother can do it better than she can because he is a boy! Most girls her age won't let that fly! LOL!

    Back in business! OJ had one in stock and man they didnít waist anytime shipping it. Ordered it Tuesday and it was here today. Makes Amazon look slow. Now to ship my old one to them for repair.

    The more I look at the trailer and how low the lake was makes me think the rear of the trailer just wasnít deep enough or it came up a bit and I didnít notice it. Just canít think of any other way it could hit like that. Itís not like I was super crazy crooked, it was just slightly off centered. Iím mean you canít get too far off with the guide poles there anyways.

    Glad you are back up and running. Props to OJís customer service.

    My theory on hitting the prop on trailer is you had it too deep and the bunks didnít grab the hull.

    The guide poles flex quite a bit and wonít stop the boat enough to prevent a prop hit.

    I know for sure wasn't too deep with the way the water is right now, we're pretty low for my lake, and I've had guys back me in way deeper. Just kind of odd. Water was almost dead calm too. 24+ years of boating, loading, unloading, in all conditions and never hit a prop till last weekend and it hit the trailer. Just very thankful there wasn't any other damage. Prop while not cheap is an easy fix.

    So the OJ sent a new brass key with the prop, SC had a steel key in the original prop. I put the brass key in as I think its a nice bit of added protection for the shaft, what do you all think on that one?

    I donít think the key material really matters.

    The shaft is stainless, prop is Nibral, therefore you will always have dissimilar metals.

    The key will be brass or stainless.

    The taper is what truly holds the prop to shaft.

    The key is simply back up.

    Honestly I would opt for brass in case of prop strike. I would rather sheer the prop and key way versus sending that load into the V drive.

    I agree on the brass keystock, but honestly that will probably not shear before the prop turns into a pretzel and passes by whatever you hit anyways. I guess it could always wrap up with a rope or cable or something though and shear it. By the way, I am glad you are back up too. Also am surprised about it hitting the trailer as well as you are. I had always told myself that the trailer design would always protect that from happening as long as I was pretty straight on when loading. I guess that's not exactly true.

    Eric is the man when it comes to props. Unfortunately I have been down to his shop way too many times this Summer getting props straightened after several back to back prop strikes with debris in the lake. I asked him if he had a punch card for me because at the rate I was going I was gonna need a new prop by the end of the Summer. Glad to see you.got it handled.

    Kinda my thinking use the brass key save the shaft or more importantly the V-drive. Hopefully it never happens but if it ever happened it would shear the key.

    Will be interesting to see what kind of timeline they have on repairing the old prop. I figure being the end of summer they are bound to have a huge back log of damaged props they will be working through. At least I didnt kill it past the point of repair.

    Yes plan on wrapping up the prop once fixed and keeping the puller in the boat just in case.

    both OJ and Acme have weekend saver kits with some nice canvas or hardside cases. might see if OJ will cut ya a deal on one of the cases since you are buying a prop AND doing a repair. they are super nice to keep everything together and easy to store on the boat..
