Propeller Repair and Reconditioning

All inboard propellers are repaired to ISO Class 1 and Class S tolerances using the  Prop Scan and Hale MRI computerized measuring system.  Reconditioning propellers to those tolerances will help to eliminate propeller vibration, increase fuel efficiency and maximize speeds while optimizing your engine’s available horsepower.  So remember, in order to maximize performance and operate efficiently, a propeller must be in top condition at all times.  Any distortion from its designed shape and geometry or any imbalance throughout can cause: vibration, loss of thrust, engine damage, drive train damage, increased fuel usage and a general lowering of your boat’s performance.

We also offer Outboard, Sterndrive, Pod Drive propeller repairs

Prop Scan

Most traditional propeller repair shops can "fix" propellers.  However, most traditional shops are not able to recognize the deficiencies that minimize a propeller's full potential.    Prop Scan measuring system was specifically designed to inspect the accuracy and precise hydrodynamic form of Australian, Canadian and US Navy propellers.  The accuracy and form or shape of a propeller blade section as it slices through the water determines the ultimate thrust and performance of any vessel.  Using Prop Scan technology a certified Prop Scan Technician will measure your propeller free of charge, check the accuracy against the ISO 484 International Standards and determine the section form of your propeller.  To optimize your propeller your certified Prop Scan Technician can then correct any accuracy problems, apply the correct section form and also tune the pitch of your propellers.  An accurate ‘Prop Scan’ optimized  propeller with the correct section form and pitch will always out-perform a standard propeller repaired in a traditional propeller repair shop.    Bobby Soles Propeller is the only Prop Scan Certified repair shop in Palm Beach County.

Every propeller, new or used, has faults. Our Prop Scan equipment allows us to see these faults, understand the deficiencies they create, and make the corrections necessary to bring out the best performance possible. By optimizing the propeller, you will get fuel savings, increased boat speed, reduced vibration, correct engine RPM and correct engine loading.
