    Why the prop need replacing at 10 hours? Look under the ski and check it out for a loose rideplate and grate.

    Sounds like something was not reinstalled correctly when the impeller was replaced.

    Have you inspected the jet pump and under the hull (ride plate and intake grate)?

    If the stock speedo was reading all over the place, I would bet they left the rideplate bolts loose. Hopefully that was ALL they left loose. The intake grate being loose will make it hook like that also.

    I don't know of a reason to take the rideplate or grate loose to replace a prop on a stock boat anyway.

    Mate I would say they left the rideplate loose. They would loosen the rideplate to get the pump out for the prop. Very dangerous I would be extremely pissed if i was you.
