Ribcraft

Hi , Recent Ribcraft 4.8 purchase She has a 50hp four stroke Yam on the back. The prop is a bit dinged up, will probably hammer her out a bit and keep as emergency spare. Whats my best options for a new prop ? Will usually 2 on board with plenty of fishing gear and used in the Irish sea for the most part. Any info much appreciated.

Matt- congratulations. A good buy.......
Darren at north west propellers in Derry will 'unding' the prop for you, I have seen him sort out ones fit only for scrap.
There is a prop wanted thread on the forum too.

I had the yam 4 stroke 50 on back of my last rib, the Yam480. - it's frugal on fuel.

Thats good to hear Paul
