Default can this be repaired?

this is off my little outboard. i've been using the prop wash to blow the muck out of my canal . i hit a log or something wfo and tore the ends of the blades off, was wondering if it can be fixed, as i'll be making more passes as soon as i get this fixed or scrounge up another prop. any one have an old 19 or 20 pitch ss prop for a merc 150 they wanna sell cheap. prefer one thats ruff already as its gonna be a tough life for the prop

I could imagine. That's what I'd call severe duty. It's like a mud blender. I've seen it done, dredging can get pricy.


I have seen props in that condition fixed, though I con't know how it would compare to new.

Straight from Julie, "You could, but probably wouldn't want to."

But since this is just a mud stirrer, go for it.

looks like a yamaha prop that will fit on a merc,but the way it is broken looks like the tensile strength is bad?? I would go with a new merc prop.
