:rolleyes:mine looked like that when my "EX" girlfriend came into the trailer to hard. sent it to eric at oj and had it back in less than a week.

ps, could have been that i might have had the trailer in just just a little to deep.

Hello XPC Sealman. May I ask, for Chief's prop, will it be 75%, 85%, or 95% "like new" after repair? (ie, performance/efficiency) How much will it cost? (I boat in the river and expect more prop damage). Thanks.

I might keep it the way it is, kinda like one of those vornado's for the car intakes. I'ld bet that would improve your fuel consumption to only 20gph!!

In all truthfullness, they repaired one of mine that was WAY worse. should be 100% when they repair it!

We strive to get them back as close to 100% as possible. As for the cost Give Eric a call for a ballpark quote: 800-359-9730

I was verbally quoted $70 - $125 by Eric for repairs to my slightly dinged prop Wade.

Chief....

good thread!

I feel your pain! The same thing happened to me earlier in the year. Boat kicked a little sideways and the prop got into the trailer. I wasn't sure if it was repairable so I just ordered a new one.

If it is true they can repair it that will be great and I can send mine off and get it repaired and have a spare.

Looks like the prop was repairable!

Direct quote from Eric: "Your prop wins the 2009 Most Welding Rods Used Award."

Thanks Eric!

No offence to the guys on here but I used local shops in houston and was very pleased. Local prop shops are all over.

Trailer too deep and rudder not straight. I thought it was impossible but it's possible. Live and learn, I should have had a spotter in front of the trailer while I was loading. It looked straight to me, but the pickle fork can be deceiving.

So the great deal I got on the prop is now reaching MSRP.............

Damn got me worried now we are on the last weeks of a steep ramp that we have to load with the trailer buried or it will not clear the bow cradle.

Never thought about the fork thing but I see your point. Finally have the wife not lining up her head on the center of the trailer. :D

prop looks great, will tell you that you will be able to tell where they did the repairs after you use the boat for a while, i look at it everytime we go out and think dambit.

but it performs fine.

It's a soft drink can, with a homemade .032" aluminum holder pop riveted with washers inside to the bottom of the can so they won't tear the cans thin aluminum, before filling with Great Stuff foam that when cured after a week or so makes the can very rigid. Painted flat black and black Velcro applied to hold the GPS and weave Velcro on the outside of the can to hold tight in the cupholder.
