Obviously the mercury prop covers would work well for normal storage when walking around the boat... just curious, Can you easily get the bags on/off from a typical swim platform before jumping into the water?

How substantial are the bags? Do they have some kind of metal ring holding the shape? If so, is there any concern with that ring touching the blade tips? I'd be concerned about how long the bag would last given how sharp cleavers are.

I was thinking about developing a heavy duty urethane plastic solution that would slide over the props... but if the mercury covers are good, then that's probably a waste of time.

There have been a few boats for sale lately with no props. Maybe buy one of those ?



The bucket sounds good on quick thought.

They are made out of neoprene and had a plastic like ring on the inside that would go around the blades. There are straps stitched into the bag and then the ends had a clip like a back pack they also had a draw string to keep the on tight while going down the road. I only had them a year before I sold the boat but the worked good!
