    First for me... I actually hit one last week while backing my boat down the ramp. Seems it was sleeping at the ramp and I didn't know it till I dropped the boat in the water and all h*ll broke loose.

    I was going real slow they kept running into me ...They were all OK just kinda folded the blades back  did not leave any marks ... prop must have been real soft ...

    I am going to come up with something smooth and flat to put on the skeg so it just slides on their skin the motor will kick up and not do any damage at idle speeds

    also saving up for a new paddle so if possible I can go to paddle power until I'm clear ...
