Unless your into racing at over 50mph that dont even count as damage.

Get some wt n dry, clean it up then use a bit of polish to get it shiny again.

would be a sin to pay for repair on that prop

that will no way give any decrease in speed that would be noticable.

Maybe 0.01 mph

Ok, many thanks for your advice. It looks tomorrow as if I will be working quite close to Steel Developments, so having spoken to them on the phone, I plan to pop in to see what they can do. I'm not the most practically minded person, not that it's difficult to get a bit of wetndry or a metal file, but I still like to have it seen to professionally.

Besides, I'm just about to order a Renegade 4 blader, (I was already going to before this happened), so switching to that will put my mind at rest even more, not that really theres anything to worry about.

What do you reckon I could get for a 22" Viper?

Much appreciate the advice, Gotchi

Agreed

Mind you dont get too many.. cos with a stainless .. your gearbox will be taking a ding too .. but at that level Rub it down .. forget it... and power on

I'm with Biggers on this one - we loose our Prop Virginity sooner rather than later. Treasure the story and move on - it'll be the skeg the next time, now THAT is ugly
