11-1/8" x 13" 3 blade stainless?

I have a stock Yamaha 3 blade aluminum prop. 11-1/8" x 13" on a 60hp 4 stroke. Perfect RPMs for me, 5900 empty and 5200 loaded heavily. So I really don't want to change sizes.

It has some dings in it and I would like to convert it to a spare and use a stainless prop as a primary. However I can't find this exact size in stainless anywhere by any company. Does anyone have any leads?

Before you buy you might want to take into account that stainless props have less flex and have thinner blades therefore the pitch that works in aluminum is not necessarily what you need on stainless.

Yeah I could go down an inch to try to compensate. But I think that would just be messing with darn close.
