Does anyone know how much it costs to get an aluminum prop repitched? Possibly cupped as well?

I'm pretty sure that the pitch can't be changed.

Buy a S.S. with the right pitch and cup or have it done and be done with it or be happy with the sub-performance you are getting now.

I'm not buying a SS. I was all set to do so a little while ago and then I destroyed 2 props inside of 3 months hitting things. I'd rather sacrifice a $70 prop then risk another $1200 lower unit. If the aluminum can't be worked, or it's too expensive then I'll just shelve it as a back-up to my back-up.

That's fine, but you don't seem to understand that each component compliments the other. Trying to cut corners if you want better performance is not going to work. "You gotta Pay to Play"

*Jack Plate
*S.S. prop
*Compression plate

When running is your Se sport wing out of the water? If not, then it's producing a lot of drag. My compression plate($60 Bob's) is out of the water with the fins submerged while running. The water flowing from the bottom of my skiff hits the bottom of the plate which then produces stern lift and it planes like the skiff should.


BTW, how my people have you herd breaking a lower unit simply by using a S.S. prop vs. Aluminum? How the hell are you running your skiff? I have never hit anything other then my skeg.

More pretty wrong information. Above from the nut

And not answering the guys questions or helping with his needs


Firecat

I read that you dont want SS so here is some aluminum prop info

Just got the phone with Robert at Frank & Jimmies Propeller

$20 to cup

$37 to change 1" of pitch

$87 to change 2" of pitch

These are their prices and may vary from shop to shop. But it gives u an idea.

This shop that has helped me in the past.

SS can only be changed 1"
But aluminum can be changed 2"

Hope these facts help out

If I don't know I call the experts. I don't pretend to know.

I want fellow microskiffers to get helpful info
:D

I had a prop redone at Frank & Jimmies and they were a little more expensive than Admiral but I think that it is simply because of the market.

Do your best guestimation on what you need and then have it made the way you want it.

By the way - what motor do you have?  I have a few aluminum and two ss props of different size, pitch and cupping that might fit and you could try them if you wish. 

Edit: Brazil - see High & Dry's post for clarification.

Then tell a guy to go buy a $500+ prop and spend another couple hundred to treak it! LOL

I'm glad you guys have put out the correct info as I have always used S.S. props.

It's also nice that since Tom left the Forum Ducknut has found another BFF. So continue, your tag teaming towards me, but try to keep it in the closet. ::)

LOL! I think that is what they used to say!


Ryan,

I'm really done with this. It's fun for awhile, but the more you reply the more I can see just how uneducated your are. Most of what doesn't make a whole lot of sense and look they were written by an 8 year old.

BTW, when you imply that you are "tact" maybe you should try reading what that WORD means.

Here you are..........

Tact is the last thing you have! :eek:
