Over memorial weekend I managed to find a sand bar on the delta doing about 25mph. Boat never came to a full stop but you could tell that something was hit. It was at that time my depth finder was alarming. I circled back after coming off plane to see a shallow area. We finished out the day not feeling anything. Pulled the boat out of the water and inspected, nothing. Wow someone must have been watching over me. Went out two more additional times felt nothing.

The last time we went out I could feel a very slight vibration at wakeboard speed. Decided maybe shaft alignment was out. Soo last weekend I was checking the alignment and I could not even get a .0015" feeler gauge into the coupler leading me to believe the shaft is aligned. After talking to a service center they informed me that it could still more than likely be the prop.

So my question is
1) Is there anything else I should check?
2) Does anybody have some recommendations on a prop repair shop preferably in the Stockton area?
Thank You in advance

prop.

It may look fine but all it takes is a very slight bend in a blade to cause vibration.
