Propellor Advice

I have an opportunity to buy a Mercury Propellor 10.75" Diameter with a 12 degree pitch (part no 816702A40).
Not being technically minded I wonder if someone can tell me if this would be a suitable spare for my Mercury 60hp two stroke?
What would be the price if I bought if from an Outboard Dealer?
thanks
Martyn

Don't know about the pitch and fitment of this particular prop but the price of a new genuine prop should be less than 100 and at a guess would say 85

Noddy, would be worth checking with either your local Merc dealer or Julie at Steel Developments, who also sell new props. She is very helpful, just give her a ring. Do mention Ribnet, as they some time post on here.

The last prop I bought from a Merc dealer cost me 115 and that was 1995, thankfully its not a Yamaha outboard

Take your existinp prop off and see what size that one is, but I think 12" pitch may be to small unless you are planning to keep it just as a spare and the price is really cheap

Thanks Pete
I only want it as a spare so might haggle a little.
Have bought a prop off Julie before and, as you say, she had been more than
helpful.

That prop has a recomended retail of 115 + vat. Is your 60 a big foot or a normal type gearbox?. Because it will fit a normal 60 gearbox but not a bigfoot gearbox.
