    I got the impression right or wrong , at the time of purchase of my boat that you can,t just walk into a prop shop and buy them .
    Worse still they do batches ,not individual pairs .
    This means the lead time could be months ie a season not a couple of weeks .
    This info came out over a few beers with the broker he mentioned many a season has been ruined by owners assumption that props sit an shelf a phone call away for those size of boat .
    Fortunately we have a spare pair on a rack under a bunk in the rear cabin .
    How much truth is in that I don,t know ?

    As said figure 4000 /6000 a pair

    An additional advantage of outdrives. I'd expect to have a new set in 24 hours, even in Spain. And there's normally sets on eBay going cheap.

    I had one new, one refurbished and 2 new nuts on my Targa 64 last year, luckily the seller had to pay for it, but I believe the refurb and 2 nuts was about 500+vat and the new prop was 3K + vat
