    Default Nice

    A friend here on the forums told me about how to build something just like that. Looks like yours really fits well. Is that a sticker on it? Does that mean you bought it instead of built it? If so, from where? What brand?

    Sure looks like it would really do the job.

    Sure looks nice! But what is the price and do you have access to any testing results? I would bet it affects the efficiency of the motor/prop, would like to know how much.

    I've never tried anything like that on a larger outboard, but we have tried them on smaller, 15hp outboards. They work well for protecting from large rocks and seem like they would work well with logs and other debris like fishing nets, etc... The time we had problems was with small gravel/sand. The smaller rocks could get wedged between the prop blade and the protector, suddenly stopping the prop and putting a ton of load on the driveshaft. I have no idea if this could/would be an issue with a larger outboard.
