Question about Boating
I bought a 6 dollar watersnake pos from wal mart of course it wasnt even close to fitting my old sevylor 12v. So I said wtf it I drilled out a 1 inch hole in that then filed off the old blades on old prop to the hub which was intact. I then used the old hub and cotter pin with liquid metal gobbed inside slid the new watersnake over top and centered and set it. The first problem is the blades are much bigger but wtf am I gonna do. To be continued. Haven't tried it yet..But the concept is sound. I used a paper ring to hold in the liq metal from leaking out while setting and can access cotter pin to boot!! I could file down and reshape blades as well if I find they are to big. But that might be unintelligent. Well more unintelligent than my other unintelligent idea. This is American ingenuity at it's best.!!!

This may sound really dumb but it's worth a shot. I bought a trolling motor and it did the same thing as yours. I put up with it until I broke a prop blade. When I was changing the prop I discovered about fifty feet of monofilament fishing line wrapped around the shaft, partially melted, hidden by the prop hub. Once removed, it worked fine. Hey, try it, can't hurt.

Minn Kota doesn't supply any other props than the stock ones for a reason....if you install a larger prop, it takes more power to turn it at the same speeds. More power (amp draw) means more heat....more heat means blown electronics. Be careful, in their warranty they state that installing an aftermarket prop will void the warranty. For good reason too! I've seen the damage that can occur.
Best of luck
