Why would you want to shred the bag? when all one has to do is to pull the bag off.

Plastic bags once wrapped round prop and shaft do not come off easily - even with an installed line cutter.

The black plastic bag sounds like just the ticket for our folding props next summer when we leave the boat for hurricane season. We had mucho growth this past summer.

Thanks for all the replies.
