Thank you for your reply Julie, and for your email.

There's a couple of points I'm not in agreement with but I shall reply to you by email.

Hmm, I'd be interested in knowing the answer to that one as well!

Shame to let this thread die without hearing what the outcome of it all is. Has RichardB been shafted by the evil prop repairer, or didn't we get the full story. C'mon Dickie, spill the beans!!

that's rubbishing where I come from

Sorry Richard, that's not how I see it. Having supplied Solas props to a number of customers, I stand by my statement that they are a "budget" priced prop that is not really suitable for high performance applications. Julie did infact advise that a rubber bush is not the ideal thing to have in this situation, and did infact reccommend a solid hub.

Unfortunately, a solid hub prop would in most cases void the warranty on an outboard, as the rubber is there to protect the lower unit and propshaft from damage, possibly from not driving the boat correctly in big seas, or striking an underwater object.

Anyway, at no time did I rubbish the product or indeed the company, who I have used on numerous occasions since 1976.
