NATIVE PROPEL PROP INDEXER
Problem Statement:
The Native Watercraft Propel unit was revolutionary when it first launched and for a few years after. Like all products however, not all the bugs were shaken out and revisions are necessary.
The issue addressed here is quick egress of the Propel unit when approaching a shallow beach or sand bar. There is no indicator for the prop location so the user often got the unit hung up under the boat.
Brainstorming:
1.Uses existing parts with modifications
2.Metal stamp trigger handle that is part of the lift handle
3.Bottle opener
4.Fishing line cutter
5.Elegant marriage with current shape of unit
6.Spring loaded
7.Bolt on
