We have a Stainless Duo Prop and by reading what you have said then aluminum spare is the way to go.This is good news as it will be cheaper. My next problem will be where to buy the Alli Duo prop for a Kad 300 at the right price?


Interisting posts re the Yamaha and although Mr P doesnt seem to have any trouble to speak off, I decided it was safer to go with Volvo,as also there international back up is very good and most parts available in most countries, although some of you have recieved bad local service.

Thanks Seafaryskie for your imfo as it shows the difference of oppinion based on others experience is very helpful and can realy be of assistance.

And we can all contribute differing oppinions and all providing the motorvation is one of help and not bloody mindedness.

Cheers.

Charles you may be popular with some people and you have some obvious good organising skills.

But Please dont try telling me what to do. I live by my standards not yours.

Agree with you completely - take a spare out with you - Aluminium is fine - this seems to be an old wifeys tale about this prop carry on--- before anyone trys to disagree - it is proven with time and experience - the best way- surely.

The way Aluminium props are sounding - from some - hit a bit of seaweed, and they are knackered - Bol*~^ks springs to mind- have hit allot worse, and no bother at all.

TIME PROVEN - which is surely the best.

which is what this is about - the best engine, proven IN A RIB

Seafariskye, I will not ever listen to Bull##t and I can see neither will you.

Alloy props are standard issue on petrol engines and they do a lot more revs with the same HP.

I do wish people would be carfull what they say as far as advice goes, as you could loose your mate a lot of money?


There must be some people on here that realise this is a great opportunity to genuinly help each other, and not allow each other to go with the flow,Purchasing and running a rib for any length of time requires sound advice,and not a load of Bull,from those that prefer to take ,rather than give any genuine imfo or prefer to pm each other more than post.?

Thanks for the Imformation and my boat will be a better boat.

And its a good un I promise.
