I have a 18 hp outboard and was looking at getting a prop guard for it, only thing is they are pretty expensive!
so I was thinking if a guy had a welder and some spare time... He could probably make one.
by looking at some of the models on the market I have a prety good idea about how I would go about making one, but I still have a few questions.
a. are their any hydrodynamic issues that might come back to bite me?
b. how much distance should I have between the guard and prop so rocks don't get stuck?
c. is this even possible???
d. has anybody ever heard of someone doing this before?
