Service Marine did mine. On 515 close to 69. 903-473-3909. They do good work at a fair price.

I have never had one straightened like this. Will they bend again easily after you have it straightened?

Since straightening may involve beating on the blade, with the entire prop resting on a mandrel or block designed to fit the blade pitch, I don't think a repair shop would do it "on the boat". Straightening doesn't make them bend easily again.

Here's who to use

You don't beat on the prop to straighten the shaft.

It is not the prop it is the shaft

you can try Discount Maintenance Marine 817-274-1050 or b & B Propeller 817-284-7201. Both seem to be honest and upfront, but not sure as the extent of the damage.

Sounds like a [censored] shoot to me. hammer

It (MIGHT) work and it may not.. Would sure want some kind of guarantee... Odds are you might soon be fixing more than a bent prop shaft.

Edit: I did not know if you were shooting craps it was a censored deal. They do it in Vegas all the time .

NO--- Service Marine in Emory 903-473-3909 will remove the prop shaft, straighten and replace with new seals. Never try to straighten the prop shaft while in the housing as you will only be bending the outer part of the shaft.
