2 year old Mercury 75. Bent one prop blade a bit, enough to feel vibration. It has been a looooong time since I did that. Am I better going with a new one, or getting this one ‘unbent’?

Guess I’ll google up a new one to see what it would cost.

We did catch enough crappie for supper. Expensive fish...

Get a new one off amazon in 2 or three days, and send the other off to get unbent, then you have a spare. Don't run with vibration. Might mess things up.

Boocat, I think I’ll take your advice. Sounds like a reasonable plan.

Just got price info. New aluminum prop $150ish. Old prop unbent and balanced $120ish plus freight both ways. I’ll go with new and not worry about getting the old one fixed. It’s not like I bend props on a regular basis (hopefully).

Now I’ll go remove the bent one and take it with me to the dealer. The good news is that it gives me something to do, as we self-isolate way out in the country.
