Well I thought I'd better update this thread since it's been almost a year. Lazy git had all this time I hear you cry - well no actually, I only received my props back about a fortnight ago!

I've had every b******t excuse under the sun over 11 months including the fact that they were broken into and had all their props nicked etc which may well be true but they didn't get mine obviously.

I'm not over the moon about the standard of finish either and they're showing signs of being kicked around someone's workshop for 11 months

So, lesson learnt, won't be using Propellor Solutions again, sorry Thomas.

ps I didn't get charged for the work in the end, at least he recognised the level of service.

Happy New Year everyone

We have gone to this guy for years and years, as part of a larger fishing family and also owners of recreational boats. Some props he mended were handmade and could no longer be bought.
We were so sad to find out he had been robbed, 45,000 worth of stuff and his insurance don't want to cover it. I have had trouble ocntacting him and hearing other people may have, well I just hope he is still there.
