Spare props

Would like to have a set of spare props but looking for used or rebuilt? Any suggestions appreciated. Props are 32x24x2 1/4

Why don't you get new ones for your boat, keeping the old ones for spares.

The props are only thre years old, but if I cannot find a set, that is what we'll do.

Just out of curiosity, since you apparently have a twin, what do you see as the benefit of having spare props? Do you intend to carry them on the boat with you? And am I correct in assuming you have a left hand and right hand prop on your boat?

These are quality Tiawan props , not remelt brass scrap from India , China , or Malasia.

Custom then shipped does take a while.

Be sure to specify LH or RH , and try new.

Otherwise Boats & Harbors has many advertisers to locate what you need in used.

Try the consignment shops.
I carry a spare for my single. I got the prop from a friend and just had to re-bore it larger.

I keep a spare on the boat and have changed it in the water to test my skills and tools. I also pull the prop when I haul and maintain the joint.
