Bad enough but I've seen worse! Anyway the best bet for SS prop repairs is Steel Developments Ltd. You will find them on www.steeldevelopments.co.uk. They can also change the pitch of the prop when repairing it!

Try Propellor Revolutions, these guys are very good and won't rip you off. Trying to find the number, maybe someone else has it handy. Steel Developments are also very good and are the agents for Solas props. Have a look at http://www.solas.com[/URL] Solas are very good and are not as expensive as the brand-names.

I will be at Beaulieu boat jumble and am sure that you should get a good price for a prop there if you want to go, if not if you let me know the size you want and a guide price I will try to get you one, it is on 28 April

stick with an ally replacement prop

lest costly than wrecking expensive gearing

steel developments are excellent, should cost around 25 quid to repair an ally prop if chipped

I have used them many times, also have a look at the 4 blade ally prop, gives excellent hole shot

I once removed all three blades completely on an ally prop by we think hitting the bottom whilst planning, no damage whatsoever to leg, doubt that would have been the case if it was a stainless one.

Okay then here is my bit.

Ally prop hits something and breaks.
Ally props are much cheaper.

Stainless steel props do not break very easily, therefore something else may break.
Stainless steel props are very expensive.

Compromise: Use an ally prop and cary one as a spare.

Surely it is better to sacrifice a cheap prop than to risk damage to the leg/engine?

Cheers

Have you tried Streamlined Propellor Repairs in Aldershot ? Been a while since I used them but very good. A one man business that relies on word of mouth. So if his work isn't good enough he goes hungry. It is a devil of a place to find so probably best sending by post. Tel was 0252 316412 but that was before the codes changed. Give him a ring first. He repaired an Ali prop for me with a chunk the size of a 2p missing from one blade. Couldn't tell which blade had been repaired when it came back! Top bloke. Let us know how you get on.

Chaps.... you cannot begin to compare an aluminium prop to a s/s one, barring the price. The correct s/s prop to match your boat is fundamental in it's performance, and can transform a boat! Everything begins and ends with the right propellor. Aly props are known to slip, cavitate and do all manner of things a s/s prop would not do. Purchase a decent s/s prop and keep an aly as a spare. Props are not a science anymore, more like an art!
