Any recommendation for good prop source? Thanks
My trawler swings a bronze 16x8 heavy thrust, three blade prop manufactured by Hung Shen (HTP-3). Price was right and I've experienced no problems. Quality/performance is good; and after several years in the water, I've not seen any signs of abnormal corrosion.
