Generally what they do is weld a new piece of steel on, then work it down to the original shape. As Brad says though, it is at an area where it would probably happen again due to the stress on the weld. Anybody have a spare 34p Maximus they want to sell cheap, lol

Felt something different after I came out of Boca Inlet, but it was very minor and more of just a "feeling" something was happening. Ran the rest of the day watching the gauges, got back to the marina, when it was on the lift looked at it and holy crap! Missing a 2 inch section of my starboard prop! Never felt like I hit anything, never really had a vibration, can't see where anything else was hit, could it be cavitation that caused this? Anybody know if it can be fixed, or will it have to be replaced? Guys at the marina said they can weld a piece on, then cut and lab it back but I have never heard of this being possible. Heres a link to the pic, if someone wants to post it feel free. Looking forward to you guys opinions!

You didn't hit anything. Same thing happened to me twice.

It was a 34p Maximus off an XR drive w sportsmaster lower, I have heard of this happening on some props before, anyone seen this happen regularly on Maximus? And could it have been caused by cavitation?
