One of the blades is bent slightly on my 1997 PS 205 (4 blade prop). It vibrates slightly over 20 mph but is not too bad. Want to get prop. re-built but was hoping to wait until the fall when the season is over vs. waiting 2-3 weeks for prop. to be returned.

Question - Will I do any damage by waiting a month before having this done?

It's best not to run a damaged propeller that is vibrating to long. We can turn the repair around fairly quickly, usually the prop will be returned within 2 days after it arrives. Give me a call if you have any questions.

Thanks

My suggestion is to buy a new prop and then get this one tuned and use it as a spare. This way in the future if you bend one, you just have to change out props and you are back on the water

A spare prop is the best way to go, have a spare for the trailer right.... Typical repair runs from $70.00 to $125.00.

We use to have 2-3 laying around, just for this reason.
