This is a pic of my dinged prop. Is it bad enough to get fixed?

I say get it repaired.
No time like now in the off season to get it done, but thenagain, you don't have a off season.

..... Lets wait and see what the “normal” people say..

not sure if I am considered normal....

Props are funny. Sometimes you can,t really see any damage and they will cause terrible vibration. Other times they look bad but still perform fine. If your not getting any vibration,you might wait till next time to fix it. It seems there always is a next time.

If you have a spare, I'd put it on now, get that one fixed, and have the comfort of knowing you have 2 good props/

With your job status are you saying might have a prop for sale.

I've certainly run worse. But at the end of the year & didn't want to miss any skiing. Since it's off season, get it done now.
I'm not sure about props, but I know that the upholstery business is really slow right now. Deals are easy to get. A few years back & had my factory cover modified to fit around the tower for $40..... in Febuary.

Buy a new Acme or XMP and then have that one fixed for a spare.

Have it fixed. You never know what type of premature wear it could be causing.....ie the strut bearing. Even if you don't notice any vibration.

Eeek! I'd get it fixed, but then again, you can mark me down in the "anal" column as well.

Has that prop been repaired before?

No rattle and can't tell if it is vibrating 'cause It has been that way since I got the boat.

It looks like it has been fixed and I did find that receipt for a repair when he had his 100 hr service done.

When we sent ours in, we were told that it had also been previously repaired at least once. This was one of the reasons they felt it couldn't be made "like new" again, so we decided to keep it as a spare only. If I remember right, it also had to do with where it was damaged, so hopefully you'll get luckier than we did.

How much does it cost to get a prop repaired? I have a 14"X18" OJ with two nicks.

I dont think "analosity" has anything to do with this.. Get it fixed.

I had a couple of dings on my Tristar prop like that.. I whacked it even better and had to send it in to get fixed.. After it was repaired I thought I had a new boat..... Smoother, faster, more top end..

A few little dings make a HUGE difference ..........
