prop question

I have a suzuki v1500 alu prop fitted to a suzuki DF70 that has come into contact with the unyielding local granite one or more times than is good for it. It is 13.5" x 15" and has a core which includes a shock absorber. Can this be pressed out to be fitted in a new core or does anybody bother doing that? Am I resticted to suzuki in replacing it? I was thinking of upgrading to SS until I read on this site that an impact shock would be more likely than aluminium to transfer direct to gearbox and hence to wallet? True???

Speak to your local outboard service repair centre. One I know here rebuilds props (Pretty knackered ones at that) for £75 with a 24 hour turn around and can change the pitch.

Thats half the price of a new prop.
