Default Lost a prop. What replacement questions.

I broke a prop shaft last month on the Swamp Run and lost a prop in a very murky bottom. Divers have been looking, but no luck so far. I have been looking in the classifieds, but nothing in the size I need. I did notice that I can buy a pair of Mercury props for arond 6k vs. 5-5500k for one Herring. Nor-Tech says the boat will lose about 3mph with the Mercs vs. the Herring. The majority of my driving is poker runs usually running in the 90-100 mph range. I'm having a hard time justifying paying almost the same amount of money for one prop vs. two. What do you guys think?? Does anyone know of anyone with a five blde Herring, left hand rotation 16.5 x36 that wants to sell??? Thanks.

I lost a prop Two Saturdays ago at local Poker run
It was a Herring 5 blade 16.5 37pitch.

Dam nut backed right off.

One diver no luck awaiting metal detector on second dive
Visibility 3 feet very muddy bottom.

I may consider your right hand prop.
