Suzuki Stainless Props...

...availability thereof.

Does anyone know of any problems with these, or are they being fabbed on Jupiter?

I have my reasons for asking, which I won't go into right now; suffice it to say I've been waiting for one since March, and I'm starting to get a little peeved

I would have thought that with the price premium involved a little urgency would have been put into the equation; especially since the ing thing's been paid for.

Perhaps I should ask for the beer vouchers back...

I don't know what the fourstroke props are like but the Suzuki 2 stroke props are crap - overpriced and badly finished and get rust spots all over them in days!!!

No the engine is fine - it's just the props - I have a 4 blade Titan and it's much better than the genuine Suzuki props I bought in all respects.

I just bought a new 14.75X23 SS prop to replace the original 15X21 (on DF150) Suzuki SS one in an attempt to get the max revs in the correct place. I was told that Solas make the SS props for Suzuki, so that's what I bought..

How did it perform? the prop i've got is 3 blader 25" which seems fine at top speed but gives me the impression that it is slipping on pick up from standstill (also DF150).

I'm now thinking about trying a 4 blader, was your supplier any good (knowledgable)......

Anyway good you've solved your problem.

You been buying in bulk to get the vouchers again..

Incedently, the rib is now equipped with groovy new tough rope.

What happened to the RNLI trip ?

Cheeky chappy - this is an 'igh cless hemporium, dontcha know?

64mm octoplait, I trust - doubled up for Lochranza

I thought Amber1 was going to contact the RNLI re: sponsorship (not sure which way round ). If he's reading perhaps he'll make contact. Then again perhaps he's blown a whole litre of fuel on a trip down to the Isle of Man...
