    Not what I would call a good weekend. Said he hit bottom, looks like the shaft snapped off in the splines.

    I'd say he was lucky to be able to recover it!

    Wow That stinks! Weird, the props look fine from those photos. At least he saved the pod...

    Gonna be a long ride least the pod did its job and sheared off - and if you need to locate something on the bottom, the Bahamas is the place to do it.....

    How much do the PODs weigh? Must have been tough getting it back onto the boat. Shallow water = easy retrieve...if you can stand! Lots of shallow water around the Bahamas.
