    Default Prop repair needed

    Had another great weekend with the boat. Unfortunately we must have hit a piece of wood in the 5 mph zone when going back on the trailer. Didn't notice the damage until we got home. No chance of using, need to get repaired. Should I send it to Mercury or does anyone have a line. It is a labbed Bravo 30. Also was thinking of making the run on Saturday. Anyone have a prop I could use until this one is fixed?

    Get a hold of B-Blades, or I think Drew has a guy and if I remeber right his name is Phil in up in Redding or something like that, he might be able to help.

    There is a guy at Don Pedro I know that fixes props let me know
    If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

    rick by far b blades is the best but i think you want to go boating as he's probably pretty backed up right now , either of the two other guys could do the work . phils props in redding or true pitch (which two buddies used to own or still do i',m not sure) kevin or mark peeler.check turn around times and prices and go from there TUNNEL T

    Thanks for the help. The prop shop in redding looks like they can do a two day turn around and price is good so I am shipping tomorrow. Unfortunately won't be done for the weekend. Looks like I am out for the Delta run on Sat. unless I can find a prop. Might be a good weekend to chill at home....NOT.

    Thanks T-Bag and Bob for the offer. My brother (Bad News Travels Fast) has a 28 that I may use if I can't find a 30. Prop is scheduled to leave today so I should have it next week. I hope.

    try the 28, you may love it. Might only lose a couple mph on the top but all the rest will feel easier.

    I have a 28 and it will be at Jeffs shop if you want it. I just mayt want to try your 30 sometime

    I might want to try it. Toms 28 is for an outboard so it has the vent holes. Not sure if the holes will hurt proformance or not.
