Frequently Asked Questions

Most times they are. A prop with too much damage that requires too much rebuilding may need to be replaced instead of being repaired. But many people are surprised as to how much we can repair and leave it like new. We would need to evaluate it first.
Any kind of damage to a prop's blades will affect your watercraft's performance. It could be just bent or have missing parts. Even if the damage is minor, don't wait. Over time, the bearings will wear, the seals may fail and result in major damage.

Let our repair specialists look at it before it turns into something more expensive.
Repair vs. buying a new one. In most cases, if your propeller is bent or is missing a small piece it can be repaired for a lower price. But if it is severely damaged or is missing half a blade or more, it is better to consider buying a new or used one.

Give us a call; we will evaluate your situation and advise you what to do.
In our shop, propellers go through different phases while being reconditioned.
  • First, we verify and correct any pitch problems aligning the blades with a pitch block using heat and hammers.
  • We remove any corrosion, old paint or any other residue.
  • After that, we clean up any broken areas in preparation for welding.
  • Then we weld the missing pieces of the blade with the appropriate metal.
  • The blades are ground back to the original shape.
  • Before finishing, we test the balance and make the necessary adjustments.
  • It is finally finished by polishing or painting.
Boat props are made from corrosion-resistant materials as they are used in sea water, which is a corrosion accelerator. The most popular materials used are aluminum and stainless steel. Nickel and bronze are also used. They are 10-15% lighter and have higher strength and cost.
The primary difference is durability. A stainless steel propeller will last longer and will not be damaged as easily as an aluminum one. Also, with stainless steel you can expect better all-around performance. Nevertheless, the repair costs of a stainless steel prop may be double compared to the aluminum one.
