We are cruising on the Chicago River again at the end of August.
It finally stopped raining here and we got Mama Mia! back on the water.
John Mc’s cable and gas connectors worked perfectly.
Yesterday occasionally she was struggling big time coming out of the hole but once on plane cruised nicely.
Never experienced that before so what changed?
It came to me as I laid down to sleep last night. And I know I learned it here.
Marked the prop this morning and sure enough the bushing is shot.
Was still using the original 2 blade 17 pitch bronze prop. I have another aluminum 2 blade 19 off a 1964 65 hp. Headed down to the river now to swap them out.

World Class meets are still held here annually. Fun stuff and the colder the better.
