Re: Marine Tex in Pitted Max-Prop ?

I'll add a good word about J-B Weld as well. We've used it to repair an exhaust elbow that rotted out while underway. The job held up for another six months until the elbow was properly replaced. I've also used it in my home to repair all kinds of stuff from kitchen sink garbage disposals to old cast iron pipes to cracks in engine parts. I don't see why it wouldn't hold up well on a metal prop.

Let your heart tell you where to go, but let your brain tell you how to get there.

Re: Marine Tex in Pitted Max-Prop ?

Thanks for all your thoughts.

The Marine-Tex repair was done in Sibari, Italy, with the thought of getting us home. We motored a lot through the Med to Greece, then back out. We mainly sailed from then onward.

I noticed loss of the epoxy from one of the blades in the Caribbean. I don't know why.

As to why not have the prop reconditioned properly? That's easy: $$$$$$$.
