View Full Version : Ding in my prop
07-27-2009, 12:51 AM
Pulled the boat out today and noticed a dent in the prop about the diameter of a dime. The prop is still in tact, no chunks out of it just the dent. I've got a busy week ahead and not sure if I can get it in to be repaired. Am I going to do any damage if I wait a week or two to get it fixed? I haven't noticed any vibrations or anything and didn't notice hitting anything either.

If it happened while you were out and you kept driving and didn't notice anything different i wouldn't see why it cant wait.
Is this ding on the edge? Or more centered in the blade? Center blade dings i wouldn't think would matter as much its the ones near the edges that cause the water to come off the prop differently and cause more vibrations and noise.
If you have No vibrations then you can wait a week since you won't be shaking the boat apart. It will be interesting to see what they charge you to repair this. I have watched our prop shop go from 60 bucks, then 90 bucks and now 120 bucks for minor repairs. I believe the gas prices of last year and the number of repossesed boats have severely cut down his business!

You got a good repair shop in Spokane with Precision Propeller.
