    I agree... that's why i said on video, that GOD took care of us... it's a really scare situation, and i really don't want to go thru this again..

    Wow that happened so fast. How do you avoid blowout? I've had paddle wheeling pretty bad and that was super freaky

    You can recover the boat track after a prop blowout with instant slightly and precise corrections, donít releasing the foot from gas pedal, etc... this is the theory part, lol...

    During blowout my understanding is the prop loses bite and the hull drops into the drink which unsettles the tea kettle because of the high speeds involved. Is that accurate?

    If so the solve is to restore prop bite which the only way/s I can think of are to shake the wheel a bit and trim down perhaps? I have limited jack plate experience but mine moves fairly slow so I can't see dropping engine height as any effective solution but a little trim down wheel wiggle action would be quick and easy to do so is this wise or whats the playbook here? I want to visualize the best methods repeatedly before I get my speed up higher.

    thanks
