Every now and then we'll watch videos of some guys at the coast that lead off the beach and head out about 10 miles to some oil rigs to spear fish in their inflatables. You have anything like that?
No oil rigs out here but there is lots of man made jetties as well as several offshore underwater peaks that make great fish habitats :)

Thanks for all the welcomes guys :) I ended up finding another local guy who used to run a similar setup on a dive boat with the same motor. He sold me this low profile prop guard for $45. Figured it'll protect the prop from bottoming out with the littlest amount of drag. That combined with a bit more nose weight from the hookah systems battery and compressor up front should keep the nose down a bit more on take off.

Now I'm just waiting on my killswtich/lanyard to replace the stop button :)
