I was watching for shallow spots and didn't see the 4X4 piece of wood laying the water and nailed it. Luckily no hull or gelcoat problems. I idled the boat back to the ramp, but when I got on it I felt slight vibration. Pulled the boat out of the water and didn't see anything but a few small pieces of wood in the drive shaft strut.
The next day I pulled the prop and looked it over, doesn't seem to be hurt, but who knows. The drive shaft is straight, but the alignment is off a tiny bit. We decided to pull off the strut and I am waiting now for new bushings from SKIDIM.com. There is some left to right play in the rudder, but I don't know if this is normal. The play seems to be up at the steering wheel. Does anyone know if this is normal? Once the strut is back on we are going to run another prop to see if there is still vibration, if not, put the ACME back on and see what happens. If it vibrate I guess I will send it back to ACME for repair? Is this right?
If anyone has had this happen and had repairs done, please let me know what you had to do to get back to normal. Thanks all!
