sounds really weird... do you have a factory trailer? What is the prop hitting? Ground or the trailer?

Do you have a Mastercraft trailer? I have an X2 with a Mastercraft trailer, and have never had any problems. On the other hand, I know several people with X2s and X10s that have poorly designed non Mastercraft trailers and ding their props in a heartbeat if they are not careful.

I also know a guy that was loading his Centurion onto his trailer at one of our crappy local ramps, and a chunk of cement from the ramp got sucked up in his prop wash and made a nice ding.

I'm not sure about the answer on the Acme prop? I bought an Acme for my X2, and it's spectacular!

ACME makes a prop for you mastercraft. if hter is no damage to your tralier, something was sucked/washed up to your prop at the ramp.....soudns liek a random occurance

I did the same thing last year. The boat was way crooked and I gave it a little gas and it nailed the trailer...

i would suggest having someone push/ pull the boat on without it running or in gear. that is what i do. especially how dificult these boats operate in reverse.

Are you kidding? I could navigate the most narrow of channels going in reverse in my inboard.

Had a friend do the same thing on an X-7 with Mastercraft trailer. It hopped a bunk and the prop blasted the trailer. I wasn't there, but have heard it happen to a few other MC owners as well.

I've got a Roadrunner trailer and an MC. the only time I hit a bunk is when it is was way crooked. I guess I got lucky with the prop damage. it did take a nice chunk out of the 2x4. thats weird -- not finding what the prop hit. and I don't know what could be light enough "wash up" yet still damage the prop.
