Steel Developments

I deal wih SD and they will replace it for you and apologise for the eroor, they are not in the habit of making errors like this and are top of their field when it comes to Propellors only prob is I dont think they box the SOLAS ones. They do excellent repairs and servicing at a very good price and high quality.

BTW the SOLAS range are better than the standard esp the duo props.

On another note how many people get there props serviced every year? or do most people only do it when they are damaged?

What is there to service?

I must admit when i 'knocked' mine and repaired it myself (plyers and file...) it knocked a knot or two off top speed.

You should always service your props as they flex under tension and get bent slightly out of shape plus all the corrosion and dings and dents it all leads to increasing your fuel consumption and increasing vibration/wear and tear on your engine.

For the cost of it its worth doing.

Stand corrected! So does anyone else do this? I assume we all remove and grease the spline reguraly (i've seen the mess they make of your gearbox when the prop sticks to the spline)

Never service them, boats not that heavy. Ding it and it becomes a "get you home" spare, (after filing, tapping and balancing).
