So I started off this season great! I just got a call from OJ that my prop is unrepairable :( I had already planned on buying a 14.75 x 15.5, but thought that my 14 x 20 could be reconditioned and that way I would have a spare...not this time. Now I have a super expensive paper weight and no extra prop even after putting out $600. Guess I won't be buying a wakesurfer this season.

That's a bummer. Have you look at ebay for a back up prop? Even if it's not your first choice anything is better then nothing.

Wow from your pics it looked fixable, get the paper weight back and see if a local guy can salvage for a spare.

We have had an unfixable prop or two. OJ was always willing to give us $10 in credit for our paper weight.

Sometimes, they just can't be welded anymore and stay in tolerance. Way it goes.

/fingers crossed.

Oh well, I knew it was a possibility. Thanks for the link to that site bruce. Found a 14x20 for $195. Just what I need.
