Good Source for Propellers ?

I'm searching for a new propeller for my 27' Starwind. It has a 13.5 hp Phasor (Kubota) diesel.

The prop that came off was a 3-blade 12RH10 1" shaft. The closest I could find locally was a 13RH14, and that was way too much pitch.

I thought I'd found on on eBay, but when it showed up, it was actually LH. Got burned on that one. It's now sitting over in the local resale shop.

This is the only place I've found online with sailboat propellers: Inboard Propellers for Sale. Buy your Inboard Prop today and Save.

What bothers me is that it says there's a 4-6 week lead time on all orders. I was hoping to have one next weekend.

Anyone have a good supplier?

Deep Blue Yacht Supply generally has the best price, but you may have to wait if it's not in stock.

Minney's Yacht Surplus got me a good used 17" prop, better than described, for $195.00 plus $30.00 for next day shipping.

I found a good match at catalinadirect.com. The Catalina 27 and Starwind 27 are pretty similar.
