I need your help. I ran my prop across the loading ramp and want to see if it might be repairable. Also looking to pick up another prop, but not sure what to go with. I have a 2002 X-30 and the prop that's on it right now is stamped as the 202. Is this correct?

The 2-02 is the month and year the prop was made, the size will be marked on the face of the hub. Give me a call and we can talk about what we can do.

Well, I'd say that's an OJ Legend 14x20 prop. Had that exact prop on my boat when I got it.

Based on other props that I've seen posted here, it's probably repairable, but Erik will have a better opinion than mine.

I'd say that there are probably better props available, depending on what you want to do. I upgraded to an 13.5 x 17.5 Acme (it was cheap on Ebay, otherwise I would have bought an OJ), and it made a significant difference. I lost some top end - I hit the rev limiter once I get past 44 or so on smooth water - but the change to low-end performance was well worth it. I probably burn more gas now, but that's something I really try not to track (It'll make me cry).

If you want to go fast and the low speed performance is fine on the current prop (well, before you bent it), get another. If you'd like a bit more git up and go, and are willing to slow down a bit, Eric will have a good suggestion. If you routinely load up with a ton of ballast, 8 friends, and want to surf all day, he'll probably have a different suggestion.

Good luck,

Call/contact them http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us They are nice to talk to on the phone. You send them the prop and they will call you with an estimate or in my case that it's unrepairable. Their phone number is on this link

I have done worse and it was fixable.

Oh, and by the way, if you're going to put a cotter pin on there, at least get a stainless steel one. There has been discussion in the past as to whether one is needed or not if you're using the nylock prop nut; If I remember correctly, Eric had a well-informed opinion.
