I would say 50%, those are toast. They will also cause you to loose 100% of your speed when the drive goes, whether it be an out-drive or an outboard you are vibrating bad and that will cause a broken drive. Always carry a spare yo you don't have to run a prop like that, even a cheap one will be better than this. From over revving to vibration to efficiency you are loosing all the way around.

I have been VERY concerned about Vibration relative to drive wear.

Call TEAGUE and buy a prop for god sake ,you may want to try picking up the drive when beaching,pulling in the marine ,and launch ramps are hungry for skegs & props

Yeah - I did it at the ramp unfortunately. 2 ramps and one EVIDENTLY has some Clag or Oyster Shells or something at the bottom. I chose the wrong ramp obviously....
