Postby quacker equipment » Wed Oct 09, 2013 9:45 am

Can you guys weighe in on what you like or don't like about prop guards, I've been considering the prop guard but it is plastic, also been looking at the macs river runner, I'd be putting it on a 75 hp Yamaha and running in bay areas with a lot of oyster beds,
Thanks in advance.

Outboard jet, best prop guard on the market. :yes: I bet they get pissed when you grind through a oyster bed. :mad:

Macs, I wouldn't even consider a plastic prop guard.

Not meaning to pry but I'm curious why you want a prop guard? the number of injuries as a result of prop strikes continue to rise and I know the boating industry folks and coast guard are studying how to prevent the injuries and the usefullness of prop guards.

I'm trying to save my prop, saving fish doesn't hurt either :-)

The best one that I have seen and I used one for many years is the River Runner. I believe that they are made in Oregon.
They are heavy stainless steel and can take an incredible amount of abuse.
