1300 miles through the USA
“Hello ProPulse. I live in Chicago and discovered
your propeller last year. I was skeptical I must say.
But once it was on my Nissan 2 stroke, 40 outboard
which was attached to my Zodiac Futura Mark II C,
WOW!!!! What a prop! We could make our hole
shot performance so insane that the boat didn't get
onto plane it simply LEPT out of the water. Wave
jumping in Lake Michigan became a whole new
game. Almost no cavitation on even the most intense
turning and leaping up a wave. Impressive guys.
Never mind you can adjust the pitch and it never
corrodes. Replaceable blades are amazing!!
It was a no brainer to use your prop when my
brother and I decided to take our Zodiac boat from
Chicago to Gulf of Mexico by river. We headed into
lake Michigan to the Calumet river, then the Illinois
river which eventually met with the Mississippi River.
The Mississippi River is mad! A mile wide with
wicked currents and it isn't just logs in the current but
whole sections of tree. Needless to say we hit many,
many an object. The prop came through with flying
colors!! Didn't even break a blade! We headed East
up the Ohio river, up the Tennessee River, down
Kentucky Lake, into the Tombigee, the Mobile
River, and into the Gulf of Mexico. It took 18 days
and 1300 miles. We brought two extra blades and
never had to use them! The only time I broke the
prop was when the boat was on the trailer and I
reversed into a Hummer H2.
I gotta tell ya I was thinking of that little prop spinning
its brains out for 1300miles and thinking of you guys.
I wish I had had the time to contact you before the
trip. Put some ProPulse Stickers on the boat. What
an advertisement. It survived an adventure cutting
through the heartland of America. I did take a Nikon
D70 DSLR digital camera and have great pictures
from most of the trip. Anyways guys I have to go
send some transcripts off, but again, . Well designed,
executed, rugged, and amazing piece of equipment.”
