Nearly all boaters experience prop damage, which usually results from impacting a hard bottom with the prop. Even minor boat motor prop damage such as nicks and dings can greatly reduce a boat’s performance – usually slower and rougher acceleration and top end speed, not to mention reduced fuel economy. High performance, high horsepower engines usually see the greatest performance reduction, making it important to restore the prop to near perfect condition. Wired2Fish’s Scott Glorvigen shows how to repair minor prop damage with just a couple simple tools and a little know-how.
