Slightly bent 310 prop
So today i sucked up a rock or two. Shut the motor down rocked it back and fourth and it cleared up right away. Seemed to ride okay but the water was very rough today so couldn't get it going to fast. Got home and noticed a blade on the prop was bent. Machine is new.. Should I replace it or leave it for now and replace it after the season ? I really don't feel like taking eveything apart but if it's going to hurt the bearing or seal I will. Opinions?

I would personally remove the prop and straighten it out .....
but otherswho like short cuts will say if you have no vibratiosn leave it, but thats not taking all the potential damage that can happen IF you leave it as is
MY opion is do it correctly and take the prop out straighted it out ..... its only a 45min job to do.
the picture acture actually show stuff all realy, only true way to inspect in remove it !!

Thanks waz , I'll try and find some info on how to do it. Man this sucks .... Now I know why no one ever uses that ramp.

sounds like you used to much throttle in reverse
or too much throttle in shallow water

Nope I was idling away from my trailer to tie up , the water was deep by the ramp but once u went out a few feet the ground came right up so fast. So pissed.

Holeshot the ski, if she vibrates on take off your cavitating ,take off and have it professionally straighten out,probably Impros or Speedfreak and their in Brooklyn so fast turn around time..
If you decided to remove the prop and send it out may be best to Email them a pic first, might tell you it's unfixable and will need to be replaced so just buy another one..
The pic you took looking into the stator vane it hard to tell the complete story if it's an easy bend back and fix,at least to me..like to see a real close up of the whole prop..

Sucked up a bunch of pebbles late in the season a few yrs back on another ski after just leaving the ramp like you,take off was terrible but only had a week or two more out on the water so just lived with it..
Prop blades looked pretty chewed up so sent to Impros but was told too much damage to guarantee to be just like before so bought another..

I know I know , I sent speed freaks a pic I'll see what they say. How much do you think a shop would charge me to take the prop out ? It's like an hour job right ? Thinking maybe put it through insurance. Idk I'll take the ski out tomm and see if it vibrates at all and go from there. Mine as well wait till the end of the season im bound to suck more crap up. Lol

If anyone's got a stock 310 impeller let me know. Or stock pitch impeller.
