    Pump vanes?

    At one time or another with my old prop I sucked some gravel off the lake bottom. The prop was replaced and the pump ring was smoothed but I still have a few nicks and small gouges on the leading edge of the pump vanes. Is it woth worrying about? should I use a dremel to clean them up or just leave it alone? Should I keep them smooth and rounded or sharpen them up a little?

    Personally I would take some emory cloth or light sand paper and just take the sharp edges off and clean it up with out removing too much material.

    But thats me...

    Emery cloth to clean up... make sure you keep them round and not sharp.
