    You guys think my prop is OK?

    I sucked up a rock you can see in the photos. Its about an inch long and a half inch thick and lodged between the two blades. If i can get the rock out. Do you think my prop will be ok? Let me know.

    Thanks

    Roger

    prop should be ok. I would clean up the edges with a dremel and sanding drum.

    But for sure you will need a new wear ring.

    +1..........Might be able to flip your wear ring over and use the other end.

    looks to be fine, obviously there is always a loss of power but is it worth the price for a new prop or are you going to notice it probably not.

    Very likely that your pitch is going to be off now..If you have a Watcon pitch gauge or can get one of the guys to send you a printable version, it would be to your benifit to true the prop.

    for $25 why wouldn't you send it off to SBT for a refurb

    I have no idea if they refurb'ed mine which was a mess or exchanged it. I am new to jetski's but have been messing around with boats for over 30 years and their service is the best bargain I can ever remember

    Because they use the cheapest material, some have caught up with their game. It's a revolving door technique. .....and you have no idea what they gave you back.......... SBT is the Pep Boys of PWC World

    well this may be the case in some of thier applications, but every prop I've sent off has come back being in much better shape..and sometimes I can even get one drop shipped so down time is minimal. When your rework a prop, materials can't be cheap, as you typically get the prop you sent back, or an equivalent OEM core. As long as the splines are good and it's an OEM prop should be no problem.

    Shipping costs are my big problem, I'm looking for a refinisher closer to home. Our local marina has a _very_ impressive setup for prop work, but they won't set it up for PWC props ( they typically have a two week wait time during season and just do 5 types of boat props).

    But I can attest to the fact that I've sent SBT at least a dozen props over the last year and never had a problem..and the price is right too.
