Where is the best place to get a used prop?

We're looking for a used 13x13 prop so we can have a spare on hand. Any ideas of good places to buy used ones. The prop place by where I work had a used OJ but wanted close to $300 for it.

Ding up your prop on a Sunday and without a spare the fun is done. I'm looking to pay less for my "weekend fun insurance policy".

Ask your dealer. Seems they sometimes end up with used or rebuilt props; you may be able to put in an order ("Let me know if you get a used 13x13 in that someone wants to sell").

I just bought a spare off Ebay for a great price. (Acme 381, 4-blade 13.5x17.5 for $110). Currently there is this one, or if you're in the market for a 4-blade, maybe this one.

If you don't need one right now, just checking Ebay every other day for an "OJ Prop" or "Acme Prop" or "13 x 13 prop" might just get you a good deal.

I just got an OJ Force 4 blade for a $100 with shipping on e-bay last week. There are great deals on there.

Check with Jim over at Bay Area Watersports. I got one a couple of years ago for a reasonable price. His team name is JBAWS

I got a used Acme 541 for $265 from Delta Prop. They said it was someone's spare. Looks like it was never used.

I might have a used 4 blade 13 X 13 that has a few dings on it that I would be interested in selling for a good price. It would still work well for a spare. PM me if you are interested.
