Default Prop Spurs for Single Inboard

Hey gents I just purchased a 326 Stamas with a single inboard. I am considering adding Prop Spurs to the shaft since I run down to the Keys quite a bit and the cut lobster traps are plentiful. Don't want to find myself diving under a bobbing boat with a wrapped trap.

Any of you guys own them and love them? I know Spurs provides their product to the Coast Guard so they must somewhat work.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have always heard they work well, I’m up here in New England and see them on quite a few boats,
I don’t have them on my boat, I would rather be diligent and avoid cutting some guy’s property and livelihood.

I appreciate your Boy Scout attitude and defer to a captain of your obvious experience 🤦‍♂️ but sometimes other people cut the ropes and they are floating and they get hung up on ones props. Trust me I don’t use the pots as target practice. I want the extra insurance in case there is a random floating rope or a discarded net. Which many people who aren’t riding as high of a horse as you are have experienced.

I cannot thank you enough for adding absolutely nothing to this thread.

Hmmm, ....... I sort of thought my first statement was in response to your question and was a pretty positive endorsement for them, .........whatever.........

I would not expect them to do much for "discarded net", and at least up here pot warp must be made of a sinking type of line.
