The WeedShield Upgrade

This is my new upgraded weed shield design derived from my original weed shield project for the prop shaft of my Native Watercraft Slayer 10 propel drive. With this version the direction of water flow while moving forward is now blocked off by the shield while it overlaps the base of the prop hub itself. Now with that said it is virtually impossible to prevent weed wrapping over the prop when hitting grass covered areas but with this method, at the very least, it should make removal of the weed wrap a quicker headache to deal with.

I am sharing the project files of my new design on thingiverse for those who would like to 3d print their own or would like to have one made by one of many 3d printing services available online. At this time, for those needing a print service, I would like to recommend 3dhubs
