I've been boating my entire adult life. I finally did the inevitable and wrecked a prop. It was on the inaugural run of a boat I just purchased. Dumb.
Anyway. I know nothing about props. I don't understand 3 blade vs. 4 blade and pitch and so on and so forth. I just want someone to tell me what to buy, and I will do so.
2014 Mercury 150 hp four stroke. I think I would like to go stainless and my priority would probably be hole shot/acceleration as this is on a Lund Tyee that gets used for casual fishing but also watersports. So hole shot is far more important to me than top end.
Also, the damage to the aluminum prop is that I curled the tip on one of the blades. No chunks or cracks. Can that be repaired and kept as a spare?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
