Customer Question

hi there, I have a boat with a 350 chef inboard motor, the motor run well, but the prop and shaft don't turn anymore , the last time I took it out I buried the prop in the mud, is there a shear pin or something I can replace ? thanks Dawn
JA: Sometimes boat issues seem like they'll be really complicated, but end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: No I dont think so,it was going fine until I hit the mud
