Has anyone ever bought a used prop that was ran in saltwater? I am looking at one and it was ran in saltwater for 2 years. Should I pursue it or stay away?

I would check it over for pitting. Even if pitted I would think it would be fine as a backup.

I may be wrong but I don't think salt affects brass

It dulls the daylights out of it. I know that from experience.

Edit: dulls the color. Not edges.
