The Best Props for Sale Online & What you should know!
In our previous post, Best Props for Sale Online, we had discussed the beginnings of how to seek out the correct propeller business to purchase new propellers (if needed) and/or have your existing props repaired by a certified National Marine Propeller Association (NMPA) company. So now that you have done your homework about finding the correct business to discuss propellers, let’s look at a couple more ideas in this realm of distinctly unique propeller selection adventure.
Naturally, the large OEM motor manufacture brands such as Yamaha, Mercury, Honda have most of exposure with their OEM propellers in stainless and aluminum. So, the propeller business you choose should be able to assist you in selecting the correct propeller and/or repair in both stainless and aluminum. You’ll should also be able to find replacement parts when you navigate the correct site, as well as the tools to do the work yourself if you are handy with a wrench. Plus, they should also offer you other options besides the OEM propellers that can perform just as good if not better for less money.
Now, with the OEM propellers, cost can be a bit higher than aftermarket propellers, so it is a good idea to check out pricing when compared to manufacturer sites. For example, PowerTech Propellers, an American Company is one of the largest manufacture of aftermarket stainless propellers with 100s of propeller styles and options for just about every boat/motor set-up. One website to visit is www.ptpropeller.com where props are for sale with Free Shipping and an Exchange Program on stainless propellers.
And one of the worst places to get propeller advice can be from uninformed Forums. How many times over the past 15 years, I have heard “I read this on this forum, my buddy said to use this prop, my buddies boat goes faster than my boat, people on line love this prop, etc, etc, etc” so as before, be mindful. Are they a real Marine Business with a Resell Certificate or Propeller Shop Certified by the National Marine Propeller Association (NMPA)? Have a grrrrreat time on the water - The PropTologist
