    Great Times until.....Didn't hit anything and had another blade with a crack in it on this same side about 1" long. Stressed it out big time! Sounds like Merc Racing may warranty it though...we shall see. No fun replacing Max-5's!

    So no impact just came apart? Wow. How much horsepower behind it?

    Your crew running the Columbia? I'd like to get the "locals tour" of that place. I'm just 50 miles South of Portland. My junk is slow, but I'll run it hard to keep up!

    I always wipe/inspect the prop when coming out of the water. Every time.
    You'll see cracks start long before the blade goes into orbit.

    Hell yeah, anytime you want to head north drop me a PM and I'll share my cell number. On most nice weekends we are rolling around the airport or heading downtown/up the Willamette. I'd love to hook up. BTW...we spend +95% of our time running under 50!
