A couple of replies to Denny's question suggest a spun prop. Can a hub fail in a way that allows for a decent hole shot but spins at higher RPM?

My assumption would be "no", it would be the other way around. It shoudl spin when the max torque is applied on - during the hole shot.

This sound more like a case of wrong pitch, or wrong diameter...

I have seen spun hubs do weird things.....anything is possible, especially on a light boat.

Sounds more like ventilation to me. Is the motor too high?
