Default Prop Repair in NY Help Needed

A friend of mine has a ski boat with an inboard. He thinks the prop is brass. He was looking for a repair place in NY. He lives in Yonkers area. I remembered S&S Propeller in Queens, not sure if they are still in business. Anyone know of any place else?
Thanks

Ski boat propellors are usually brass. I've always heard good things about Long Island Propellors, might want to give them a shot.

I have horrible luck Johnny. Leaving the ramp i ran into a bunch of mud, it grabbed the prop and shut the motor down, but I started it up and was in the 5 mph zone to the restaurant. No issues. When the run started I got up to 65mph, 1.8 miles on the gps and the port motor overheated. I had to stop. On one motor back to the ramp the other motor was very hot also. My boat runs like Old Faithful, I did so much planning, programming, full tank of gas, entrance fee and wasnt even able to do the run. Sucked!

I do not think it is a brass prop, but a bronze or NiBral.
