    unwanted discovery

    The last coupla times out I've been checking results after adding skegs.

    The numbers were disapointing...I lost almost a mph and led me to believe that I'd installed them improperly....maybe...ever so slightly off the first time so I re-installed them with a minute (.4mph) improvement...okay...so I figured the temp base line has climbed almost twenty degrees since I'd been out previous (w/o skegs)....maybe that's where my remaining .5 went.

    While tweeking my prop today....it dawns on me...finally...after I've completed the prop...my nose cone isn't there...I coulda swore I'd installed it....yep....two inches up the drive shaft...sonofabitch.

    You know...if I'da caught it straight away I'dve just reassembled everything and tested the skegs again...too late.

    Anyone wanna guess how much speed I was scrubbing with my nose cone two inches in front of my prop?

    YJSONLY,

    How often do you pull the pump to change out the grease?

    my bad...I understood you the first time.

    How often do you pull the pump cone?...I mean...the grease has gotten milky looking.
