Zincs for Max Props
I've been lucky enough to score a 3 blade max prop, exactly the size recommended by PYI, and matching shaft size too, for a steal of a deal.
However the prop zinc is gone, of course, as are the fasteners for it.
In West Marine, the "PYI" zinc is $100, the generic knock-off $15. Is there value in going with the original?
Do they specify bronze or SS bolts to hold the zinc on?
