Used them to repair my prop - I thought it was beyond repair - but a week later and 35 - was as good as new!

How (not) to move a slipway

Tried to move a concrete slipway once using my prop. Prop came off second best and ran like it was going over cobblestones! SD fixed it a treat and I collected it a week later looking very smart and all balanced. As a bonus they're right next to my daughter's house so I combined two jobs in one.

Not much different to what you see now. The tip of one blade on the left hooker was bent back about 4-5mm & all the blades had slight nicks. I could have probably got away with knocking the blade tip back into shape & filing the nicks if I wasn't so fussy / paranoid. For the cost, it wasn't worth risking propshaft /bearing damage.
