    prop climbs shaft & carves ring in shoe & inlet tunnel?

    i looked in my intake and noticed like 5 in before the pump there is a circle carved (deep ) into the pump shoe and the inlet portion of the hull. the only thing i could think of is my (new skat trak) prop comming forward, but i know the shaft does not run through it. shaft inserts to prop and prop is screwed onto pump shaft. But what else could it possably be? prop looks fine. i thought i burnt it which was why i was inspecting it.
    don't think shaft can bounce that much. any ideas on what it could be?
    thanks, Barrett

    Impeller riding up 5 inches on driveshaft is unlikely, unless the impeller unscrewed its self and the drive shaft punched a hole through the impeller.

    Iím with Winterstick, it could be a rope tangled on the drive shaft spinning around until it got loose. Iíve got a peace of driftwood stuck on the edge of the impeller and made burn marks about 3 inches before the pump.

    thats what i was saying too, i think it was probably either fishing line with a hook or anchor or some metal wire of some sort.
