    Default 42' boat Propeller Repair need help.

    My 42' boat starboard side propeller hit on a rock last year in the coastal area. It cause a cure on one piece of the propeller. So now it has unbalance vibration if it run over 1000 rpm. Any suggestion on how to fix it? Many thanks!

    It will have to be sent to a prop repairer. Where are you and the boat?

    I and the boat are in Shepperton, Surrey.
    It is possible to remove the propeller from under water? Or do I need to put the boat on land to do that?

    you will have to lift the boat out and block it up. Props can be difficult to get off especially if they have been on a long time.
    Patience, ideally some sort of prop puller and heat usually does it.

    Then I might have to make a plan for any other items need to be fixed or check under the bottom. And try to make it back to water ASAP.

    I assume the prop is on a Shaft ?
    If the prop has a decent ding in it, its possible the shaft is bent especially the taper at the prop end, so you may need to remove it for inspection or checking in a lathe.

    Many thanks mates.
    The Shaft is straight. Just the propeller has one blade bend. I saw it during last year transport.
    I am thinking maybe found the way to remove the propeller from under water will be great. That might save a lot money for lift up the boat and stand on land. Is there any under water removal service around?
