I've run rocky rivers and it nicks the prop up pretty good.  The cool thing about a Go-Devil is that when the prop hits a rock or anything hard, two things happen by design.  First, the spring steel prop shaft absorbs some of the shock and , second, the engine pops up on the vertical hinge.  Hitting something hard will kick the tiller handle right out of your hand, again, by design.

Since the prop is mild stainless steel and threaded onto the drive shaft, there's no shear pins.  I do carry an extra prop but have never really needed to swap props but once.  That's when we went WAY up the Wood River.  The sand up there is just like grinding compound, very abrasive.

Hope this answers your questions, AlaskaCub.
