For an entire blade? You sure about that? Most prop shops over here will rebuild chips and dings, but not attempt an entire blade. And certainly not for the price you quoted (which I am converting as about $60USD)

I thought there had to be something like 2/3 of the blade left to repair?

As Bruce said - 2/3 of the blade is required for repair.

It looks like there might be a manufacturing defect on that blade - looks like two bubbles.

Yeah plus one, thats not an effective repair job surely .. also,.. its been around for a while as you can see a discoloured stain further in to the hub at that point and extension of some discolouration inside the blade towards the mid section .. surprising to see it come off in such a clean break if it didnt get a knock.

Put it this way, for the cost of a new one against the hassle of the repair breaking, together with the size of your boat ... I'd be phoning the prop dealers for a new one

I was just pointing out that a new one was a much more preferable option than 'any' repair ... as was suggested .......IMHO

The nearest Yam dealers are Stoddarts who you probably know and Keil Engine Services at Benderloch who was much cheaper for Yam props.
You turn left before Benderloch Primary school going along to Tralee and it is a few hundred yards down the road on the right set back from the road.
His prices used to be pretty competitive for non-specialist things like yam alloy props in the past.
