    What do you guys do?

    This past weekend i got a lot of stuff stuck in my prop. I had to limp over to the island and luckily found an iron rod about 18 inches in length and used that to pry out the debris that gets wedged in between the prop and wear ring. I ride the river and sometimes it is full of sticks and various debris. And the intake grate is to narrow to put your hand threw. Is there another intake grate that would allow your hand in? This can ruin a weekend!!! What do you guys do?

    Thats one of the problems with the housatonic river. there is ALWAYS shit floating in it- sticks leaves galore.. even logs and trees floating downriver that you dont see until you are almost on top of them.

    Ive never had a problem with sticks and etc getting stuck in there. I once sucked up a tow rope and an occasional plastic bag.. but thats it.

    I dont think it can be prevented.. You just have to avoid going through big clumps of it. I know youre looking for a better answer but thats prob it.

    I bring the tools with me to remove the intake grate and pump if need be.

    that is one nice thing about the big storage area on the rxp. You can fit a tupperware container with tools in it.
