haha, I am glad i'm not the only one! is there any point in re-painting it? does it make any difference? i suppose it would be a tad less efficient...

I think i'll buy a boat*

I doubt efficiency would be affected (not from the paint being abraded away.) May be a bit more corrosion prone, but I've rarely seen corrosion be a problem on a prop that get used regularly (if on a mooring, that may be a different story, though your zincs should handle things.)

If the leading edge is dinged up it can become less efficient, though. If minor, just tidy things up with a file.
