Default Do you guys have a spare prop for your boat that you bring to Canada?

I am trying to decide if this is a purchase I need to make prior to heading up in a few weeks.

Yes, I bring a spare prop but haven't had to use it yet.

Always have a spare in the boat while in Canada and hope to never use it. I have encountered a few boats 20 miles out that could only idle due to prop damage.

Yes I carry one and yes I've had to change one. Lakes are full of non-marked hazards.

Yes. I can hardly lift my tool tote with the spare stuff for my boat motor and trailer parts. Never had to change out a prop or fix a trailer bearing but it seems like I had to dig in the tool tote for something every year. I won't go up there without the spare stuff.

Like American Express...I don't leave home without one. It may be an aluminum spare, but it beats waving at passing boats and screaming...

After running into a rock with the boat and being out of commission for a day while it got rebuilt and the $300 bill that came with it(this happened about 25 years ago), I always carry an extra prop AND prop nut in the boat.
