I should be out on the water now!
Shouldn't we all! In our case: Busted our tails getting all the much-needed yard work done yesterday (Part II of spring cleanup) with the hopes of sailing today. Maybe even racing. Well, 50% chance of rain, with increasing chance of thunderstorms as the day wears on, and winds of less than 5 kts kinda put the kibosh on that plan. Oh well...
Break it to me gentlly. Am I going swiming?
I think you already know the answer to that one
I din't hit anything the last time I was out. Do these pins in the props just rust out?
They can be eaten. That's why we have sacrificial anodes. (Aka: "zincs") When's the last time you inspected yours?
Anything else it could be?
No water under the boat?
Bad news is: The prop is keyed onto the shaft. So if nothing's happening, sounds like it's Neptune's now. Hope it wasn't an expensive one!
