I'm selling the mower with the house, unless Charlie needs it for the bottom of his boat!

I just noticed when i was coming back down to the dock the other day that it seems something is missing from the prop on my main engine. I'l have to take a picture so you guys can tell me if I'm right.

Main engine? I thought you had an outboard. You did however, put me aboard one that had twin 15 HP Yanmar Diesels over here in Longboat Key.

This one has not one, but three outboards. The 40 horse Honda is the main one, the 9.9 Yamaha is backup, the third is for the dink.

Ahha! Three outboards! I always knew you were a closet powerboater at heart. What will Capt. Charlie say when he finds out!
