I know. Also many times my dock has less than 3 ft of draft. So Iím wondering if it testing on the keel twice a day is going to cause problems.

If you can't get under the bridge or reach your dock, what is plan B?

Where is everyone at in Port Charlotte? Iím in Port Charlotte down flamingo as it hits the water. I rebuilt my 36 marine trader in Fairhaven mass and brought it back by the intercostal waterway last year and sold my Island Packet 38 sailboat.

Canít seem to find many that want to talk boats around here but down at the shipyards. They wanted me to go to costal prop in Cape Coral and they want high dollar for my things and I took it to general prop in Bradington and it was like 1200 bucks when costal wanted 4-5 grand.

Long story short-When I pulled it a part the yard wanted me to check it all out even though I just came all the way from Fairhaven with it. Costal said I needed a new shaft and prop and coupling. Didnít say anything about the cutlass bearing. They wanted me to pay 4-5 grand. Luckily I got it back and took it to general prop out of Bradington and they said my shaft and prop was fine and made me a new coupling and rebuilt my cutlass bearing. All balanced. 1200 and working great.

Imo power is matched to hull characteristics to provide performance as designed by mfr.So you might call the mfr chat with their technical anf get their thoughts on repower.
