Prop Work- Near Gallions Reach

Our prop has a massive chunk taken out of it (absolutely no idea how as we've never felt an impact), does anyone know of anyone based near Gallions Reach Marina that can fix damaged props?

I will post a pic as soon as I can get down there again and take one...

I've decided to take everyone's advice and send the prop off to Steel Developments, however I've never removed one before.

What tools do I need and how big a job is it?

I've attached a pic in case that makes any difference.

A spanner or socket to remove the nut, and a pair of pliers/screwdriver to remove the split pin. Takes 2 minutes.

Would it not be better to replace that one ? I think you'll pick one up for around 100

Tim M- Cool thanks, I had hoped it would be a quick job!

B&O- That is a good question, I have no idea is the simple answer! Steel Developments come highly recommended and their price works out at 38 + VAT. Would there be a significant improvement in performance between a new one and a refurb (I appreciate a new one vs ours in its current state, but would a refurb not be almost as good as new)?

I'd have no qualms about getting it refurbished and I'm sure they will do a top job. Performance wise it will be as good as new but for me I'd use the money to invest in a new replacement, or SS even. Each to their own though. I wasn't aware it was that cheap TBH

Fair enough, the price was a lot cheaper than expected to be honest, as they are local I'll give them a go this time, if for no other reason than so I know who to go to if and when we move upwards to something more costly!
