After a good 20mins of WOT playing around in the busy bath shipping lanes, my 2 yr old daughter's inflatable suffered the same fate as the black shadows' props a few weeks back by Puffin Island.

Anyone know of a good prop refurber? It's down to two blades and performance has fallen significantly.

I think I'd be contemplating an insurance claim, with that much damage the hull will need to be checked over too.

I would also suggest she either takes PB level 1 or gets a few more years experience before she is allowed anywhere near the helm of dad's boat

Two observations.

1. The engine looks way to big for the size of boat, and
2. I don't think you need an all round white on a boat of that size, but if you are operating in bath with lots of shipping, then better safe than sorry.

Reckon I'll upgrade to stainless while it's out the water. Might change the trim to counter the weight and bow lifting too.
