Re: Prop shaft material

FWIW my original bronze shaft lasted 42 years and the Stainless one is doing just fine as you do have to be sure of there are certs on on the SS as substandard stuff is the cause of most problems


All my underwater hardware is original except the seacocks because they were gate valves



The 42 year old stuff that was changed because I count see sticking the new prop on the 42 year old shaft



The current flex-o-fold which just kicks azz in reverse

with the amount of bottom paint and other silly stuff I commonly see on props its no wonder stuff happens

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
