Dinged Prop

Recommended Posts

wideawakeaz

I dinged the prop last night coming into the dock last night. Probably needs replaced.

How do I find the part number? Which manufacturer's the best?

I'm seeing prop pullers for $62. I'm pretty mechanical, should I go that direction or I leave this one to the boat shop?

Where should I buy the prop from?

Deep blue Yacht is showing the following from Michigan wheel

Ski/Wake Boat Propellers - Michigan Wheel Propeller - Ambush 4® Propellers

The NEW and IMPROVED Ambush ski boat propellers are 100% CNC machined for the ultimate in accuracy and consistency. Michigan Wheel Corporation developed the CNC machining process for propellers in the mid - 1980's and revolutionized the way propellers were manufactured. Originally, the CNC machining technology was used to manufacture custom propellers for large mega-yachts where accuracy is critical and design geometry is complex. Now, that same technology is being used to provide the best ski boat propeller on the market.

I would recommend going with ACME or OJ as a manufacturer. Are you happy with the way the stock prop performed? If so, it's probably an ACME 537 (13.5 x 16), which you'll be able to confirm once you pull it off. If you're running a lot of ballast and would like more hole shot, there's several options from both of those manufacturers.

If your happy with your prop, pull it off and send it to be fixed. It will probably cost around $80-$100. That's what my last one was. It's an OJ.

Spend a few minutes searching the site. There are a lot of discussions on props, which prop to use etc. And yes, you should get a prop puller. There are discussions on that topic also. As mentioned, pretty much everyone at TMC is going with OJ or ACME.
