    Spare prop

    I am wanting to get a spare prop for my new boat (1995 225br crownline). I need to know the pitch of the current prop on the boat now. Is this stamped on the prop. Was also wondering about the current prop. The edges of it are pretty beat up. Will this affect performance or cause excess vibration. Any advice would be great!!

    yes the number may be stamped on it, just look on the inside of it as you spin it! it should be there somewhere!

    it depends on how bad the damage is if it will cause a performance problem or not!

    do you have a pic of the damage??

    mine is stainless and had some rough edges on it when i bought the boat, i just took a file to it and smoothed the burrs off and thats good enough for me!

    im looking for a 23 pitch bravo aluminum back up prop also! you can never be too safe!!

    yes and yes. Depending on how badly beat up of course, but it can really have a detrimental effect on performance. If bad enough, it can put vibration places you don't want it. If you are looking to get another prop, get a primary, and use this one for your spare to save some money, otherwise, you can get this one reconditioned too (if the material allows).

    Just a touch over, to cover shipping of course.

    Thanks for the tips! I'll have to try cleaning the edges up on mine. I'm going with the aluminum one also-way cheaper as a backup!

    A little elbow grease, and viola! Good as new! Buy now, price goes up with the water temperature.
