Never a Gori prop again!

I had a whole range of problems with the Gori on my previous boat, and also had very poor waranty service from them. I went through quite a few Gori''s in a 6 year period, the last one paid for out of pocket since only Gori''s fit my saildrive. That one seemed to be a little better built than the earlier ones and stayed in good shape for as long as I owned the boat. The Gori''s, like most saildrive props, had its own integral zinc, which was extremely expensive (the last one I bought was nearly $60) and here on the nearly brackish Chesapeake generally lasted about a year. A diver was able to replace the zinc without hauling the boat each year.
