    after i get a reading from the gps ill take it apart again..
    Hopefully i dont have to send it down to Jerry for that "special touch"
    but we'll find out in a couple of days..If i dont have to send it out then ill go ahead and anti-seize her..

    Thanks again Kinch.

    I put red on mine, only because I didn't want anything to happen in the lake. I'd rather have a problem removing the prop then it removing it's sel'f in the middle of the lake/

    Dont worry it wont come off now! When you do decide to remove it bet on replacing it
    Been there done that

    Blue is the only way to go!
