Prop corrosion on all 3 blades

Hi

I've got a problem with my prop corroding on the centre of all 3 blades..! Has anyone seen this before...? Do you think it's a material defect in the prop

If it's in the same spot on all the blades it 's probably caused by cavitation. Google prop cavitation burns.

Most likely the blades are bent in front of the area. Feel free to give me a call to discuss.
