    Default volvo penta plastic prop

    anyone ever use a plastic prop.
    borrowing the inlaws boat this weekend.
    he had a nice stainless prop, but wrecked it and the lower unit on a rock
    now he's afraid of the stainless one.
    he calls it carbon fiber
    but its plastic, has three removable blades.
    i'm afraid this pos is gonna grenade on me…

    advice/experience welcome

    Made to get home on like a spare tire. The flexing of the plastic prop when in use will make it come apart at some point. If he wants a prop that will crumble before the drive so to speak I would at least go with aluminum.
    A winner is just a loser that got up and did it one more time.
