S/S prop

I've been recently dissuaded from realising my dream. That is, to fit a stainless steel prop onto the RIB.
Simply put, if there's the slightest chance of the prop grounding, then a stainless one will break the gearbox. An ally prop will simply disfigure and be fixable.
Sound advice and much as I hate to admit it, maybe my SS prop will simply have to live on the transom as a spare.......had to get it you see?

I know........but this came from a dealer on the South Coast ( geddit ? ) that is about as straight up and right on and honest as I have met.
He could have taken the money and said nothing. That's really what I meant.
Still got the prop though. Just not fitted.

I think I've had the same advice from same chap...about ten years ago...he does a good trade from dinged props....he'd make more from new gearboxes...

Incidentally, stainless props are works of art.
