Arrow Acme Prop Group Buy

Due to the apparent success of Andres PP group buy that he managed to put together for the site I am going to attempt another if there is interest.

Who is interested in a group buy for an Acme prop? I know that many on here are already running these props and very happy with them and that many others including myself have expressed intrest in purchasing one.

Post here if you are interested and I will start a list of names. Once I have a good feel for the number interested I will do the leg work on trying to get a supplier to work with us.

I would be interested if the price is a good one.
I my old prop at the shop now getting reworked. I would like to use it for a spare, and get one for better performance.

I've already got an acme, but I'd recommend Schnitz. He will work with you on a group buy and his was the lowest price on an acme I found on an individual basis when I bought mine. ($293 delivered last February).

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Like the avatar Tex. "That's what I like about those high school girls. I keep getting older they keep staying the same age" Classic.

Looks like we have four interested so far. Not bad for about 30 minutes.

EastTX,

I know that he currently has the best (unbublished) price on Acme props although they have gone up a bit from $293. I got a quote from him on a prop for me about 2 weeks ago and it was $320 delivered.

I am really hoping that we will be able to get a sub $300 price on a group buy no matter who it is through.

Put me on the "possibly" list. Depends on price and availability of funds.
