Hey y'all,
I was loading my boat onto my trailer and my engine ran out of fuel so I used my trolling motor to get it onto the trailer and wasn't paying attention and the trolling motor prop hit my trailer and dinged it. I'm wondering when I should replace it? If I need to at all. It doesn't look terrible but a all 3 blades are dinged up and a little bit folded the other way because of hitting the trailer.

It can play havoc with depth finder reception if you have a transducer on the tmotor.

Best to change out the blade/prop now from your description as the harmonics of the blade can effect the motors performance over time.

Props are relatively cheap when compared to other boating items. Change it now and use the old one for a spare (emergency only). If interested, we keep them in stock.
