Re: Yikes. Help. Rope in Prop and Im at sea!
I've been overboard deep sea to fix some seams and I know how difficult it is to make that first plunge. If there is going to be a slack in the current and you can heave to, and you have a very good easy ladder, then I would hop over and take a quick look. Be sure you are attached to the boat by a line.
At least you will know if you can rely on your engine.
Good luck, Mark.
