I have had 2 props done by Houston Prop. I've been very happy with our dealings. This is the first negative I've heard about them.
I do know that he was giving a big discount on the first set of 5 blade props, not on all the first orders.
Is it possible that is where the confusion has come from?

I have NEVER heard of anyone having bad dealings with Houston Propeller. Darin goes out of his way to make things right !!

Keep in mind last week was the Miami boat show. I wouldn't jump so quick to clobber the guy. Then again if it was my money I would be a little pissed too.


There could of bee some confusion or misunderstanding in regards to the price. That was a pretty big increase. Let us know how it all turns out.

I personally have met Darin and he is not the kind of guy who would screw you around. I'm sure somewhere in this situation there was a miscommunication. It happens and I'm sure you guys can resolve it. He did excellent work for me and ended up charging me less that we originally agreed.

Yup, that's just about what I thought you would say. The whole story sounded fishy from the first post.
