Tangled propeller


Recommended Posts

Hi raiders,

Today while setting my anchor, I accidentally ran over the anchor rope and it got tangled in the prop. The motor came to an immediate stop. I tried numerous times to restart the boat but each attempt failed and the motor stalled almost immediately. I only realised what had happened until I tilted the motor up.

Just wondering if It's likely I've sustained any damage and also, are there any tests I can perform to ensure it's ok.

I managed to motor it back at 25 knots in some parts from darling harbour to cabarita without any noticeable problems.
