Stainless Steel bits

Guys for immediate positive and helpful service you need to visit this site! http://www.a2a4.co.uk It is a brilliant easy to navigate site.

Kev Nolan (The Boss) runs it out of a small shop Southampton. The shop is an alladins cave for those who like bits in stainless! He recommends his A4 range for marine and although I have yet to test the quality in the water the prices are excellent. If you order on the net over 50 is P+P free and he posts the same day.
No personal interest! just went saw and was pleased with his help.

PS I need a new prop for my Honda 30hp 4 stroke any helpers.....
The reasons for this I will post later..........when I've calmed down!!

They maybe able to refurbish your current prop, depending on how badly you have dinged it! They will also be able to supply you with a new prop. Have found them helpful over the past.

We've just had one back from them looked lovely!
There must be 2/3 of the blade left (I think) for repair.

Hmmm, I've seen some of Steel Developments handywork, and had the dubious privilege of using a prop supplied and repaired by them... enough said!

I would use either Propellor Revolutions or Streamlined Propellers

Thanks Guys

As usual brilliant help! Thank you all: would it be fair to assume that if I splash out on a stainless steel prop it will survive a connection with the sea bed a little better than ally?!

And I completely deny that the H2O call sign heard on 16 in the Solent on Tuesday was mine....well.........Okay then..

You would be right in saying that a stainless steel prop would survive a contact with the sea better. The negative aspect would be that it would wreck your gearbox! The advantage of ally props is that with contact with the seabed/rock/obstruction it tends to ruin the propeller, however your gearbox usually remains intact. There are many advantages to having a s/s prop but what you mentioned isn't one of them!

Why would it do that, haven't you grasped the reason for a rubber or flotorq hub!
