Getting Performance from your Propellers

Just like we all know that if you want anything to do with batteries and charging, you see Steve Eldred at Battery Traders at Slacks Creek, I've finally found a good propeller guy that's ideal for bass-boaters.

Colin Lough from Performance Propellers in Bulimba in Brisbane is the guy to see for stainless steel propeller repairs and tune-ups.

They have a machine that measures the shape of all the blades and then the ability to straighten them out - and just as importantly - make them all identical.

Even out of the box, some of the high-dollar props are out of whack and Performance Tuning will get you that extra speed, holeshot and efficiency that you're looking for out of your boat.

Pricing's not bad, either. A 24" Raker was recently tuned for $132.

Just thought you guys would like to know!

Thanks Steve,

You got any guys who fit hydraulic steering at budget prices???

What about if we all put together a networking list of businesses who can service everyones needs on the forum???
