    You can take it down to a local prop repair shop and they can rebuild it "good as new" for alot less than a new one, assuming that it's an aluminum prop. I've had several props redone over the years and can't tell the difference between it and a new one. I had one that all three blades got knocked off down to a half inch left on the hub! They can also change the pitch if you like. I'd go that route.

    That prop will need to be in the 15 pitch johnnie for that toon. Iffen you go any bigger you will work that little fifty to death.
