Here I try to answer some of the questions people have about what I do. Click here to return to the main prop/skeg repair page.
Q. What is the benefit to having a repair done instead of purchasing a new prop?
When you order a new prop you are asked a lot of questions like:
1. What is the diameter of your prop
2. What is the pitch of your prop
3. Do you have 6 splines, 10 or 12?
You don’t have any of these questions if I am repairing your existing prop.
Q. Why in some cases is it about the same cost to repair a prop as it is to replace it with a new one?
This can be true with some Aluminum Props. That’s because when you buy a cheap new aluminum prop you are usually buying a thinner bladed prop. If your existing prop is of a thicker material, I match that thickness when I do the repair.
Q. Can I change the pitch of my prop?
Yes you can to very small degrees.
Q. Do you use pitch blocks to ensure an accurate pitch?
Yes I do
Q. How long have you been repairing props and skegs?
I started repairing props and skegs in 1991
Q. Are you willing to meet me on a Saturday or Sunday so I can use my boat today?
In most cases I can. You need to call for availability however.
