Tips for Knowing When to Replace Boat Propellers

How can you tell if your boat propeller requires replacement? There may be an obvious reason for doing so such as if your prop has sustained visible damage to a blade. However, even when your propeller is performing within manufacturer’s recommended guidelines, often there is room for performance improvement. Reasons for replacement include:

● Close inspection reveals broken or cracked blades.
● Upgrade to different materials such as aluminum or stainless steel.
● Upgrade to a different number of blades, from 3 to 4 for example.
● Upgrade to a larger size boat propeller to improve acceleration and top end performance.
● Want to carry a replacement propeller on board “just in case.”
