Have an aluminum prop that bent in half 2 of the 3 blades. Its and 11 x 15. Since it comes from a Johnson its hard to find a replacement. Last time I fixed a piece that came off they charged me $50. Any thoughts?

why not ask the place that you took it to last time?
I just want to make sure what the going rates are as to see if this is fair. Also, looking for suggestions and maybe an online place that sells cheap online props...

The price goes from $100 to $275 and up.. thats why.
For some reason you seem to have taken this personally.

Stainless steel is far superior to aluminum. The SS prop is stronger and gives better performance. Keep fixing a inferior aluminum prop.

The price sounds fair.

The performance of stainless props on small boats is overrated.
The benefit of running aluminum is that when u whack the prop on rocks u probably will not take out the prop shaft$$$$$$$

Sounds like a fair price if dropped off at marina who has prop shop pick it up and repair. Bypass and go direct to prop shop may save u about $15. But not sure if it's worth it unless u have a prop shop that is close
