Default custom matching ,extends the life of the outdrives

and if you are running more than three, its very important they are the same ,this will help the outdrives last much longer .

Hey Darin, I gots me one of them thar matched set of propy things too! They iz shiiiiiiiiny!

Great job!

Questions,
On my props, were they polished by hand or CNC machine? While they are shiny, the sanding(?) grain is very noticable and in a consistant pattern. I just assumed when they were blueprinted and polished, they would have a mark fee mirror finish. Not complaining, just curious as to the reasoning and trying to learn more.

Also, with them being a match pair now. If I were to damage one (god forbid), would both have to be sent back in in order to make them matched again or can you go by your stamp?

Thanks Prop Boss!

Thumbs up usFOUNTAIN1

on your props I know just what you are talking about .

they were rough prior to sending them in they were all wavy ect., we can take the grain marks out, if you like,the one with the cracked hub barrel is not bad looking at all now,someone had taken a hand grinder to it before and put some deep gouges in it I will call you .

ALSO I need to send you your winning certificate on the free prop repair. lucky you


they look like a satin finshed prop lightly polished .with agood shine. they dont look new,I agree.

quote you did not want any thinning, and you have to grind material away to get them to look like the prop above.

quote you said you wanted to make them look like new,I guess I was more concerned about the way they would run.

stampings and codes on the props tell us all we need to know, for the future.

sorry about the book on your props
