prop repairs NW England

Hi

I have a small boat moored in the Baltic (Rauma Finland) although out for the big freeze now. I will be home in the UK over Xmas. I remember a mention of a prop repair company in or near Oldham anybody a number/email. Have hit a rock or two this year and would like it back in tip top condition for next season.

Any help appreciated


Regards

Mike

Interesting. Makes sense now as the guy runs SD from his house. Are Crowther cheaper?

Edit: SD do stainless, so who do they send them to??

How the fook should I know

Not arguing with you, but Crowther did tell me that steel developments send them work, so I presume it's when SD has to many ali props in his living room, not sure who he sends his S/S props to when he can't do them.

AS for cheaper I had a prop that looked like a cabbage which I got for a spare from LPB and took it to Crowther and it came back like new and balanced for 50 quid.
