A number of people faced with boat propeller related problems simply take their priced possession to a dealer or mechanic, and end up spending a great deal of money. At times, the repair work may not even prove worth the investment. Under such circumstances, the boat owner is left with no choice but to clench his fist and lament. Keeping such considerations in mind, it could always be debated whether getting the boat repaired is actually a good option or not.

There are several ways to fight with problem. The mantra here is to remain prepared beforehand. Therefore, boat owners are advised to keep a spare prop and necessary tools to get it installed. Having said that, let us now discuss the reasons why boat propellers generally fail or malfunction.

The most general issue associated with a majority of stern or onboard drive props is that their center hub can at times give away or probably spin out of control. The moment this happens, as a boat owner you would be able to feel all thrust moving away. There is hardly any dearth of reasons that can make the whole thing happen. Engine overheating is a case in point. Too much load can also lead to disastrous consequences. If the boat propeller is indeed in good condition with no bent blades or cracks, then getting the hub replaced would be a good idea.

You may now be wondering as to how much it costs to get the propeller rehubbed. According to market sources, the whole operation is not likely to cost you more then $50. There are certain boat propellers with in-built hubs that could easily be replaced by the boat owner. Of these, the XHS interchangeable hub system is perhaps the most common example. However, it should be remembered that rehubbing the propeller, especially with a pressed in hub cannot always be considered easy. As such, it would be advisable to leave such tasks to experienced mechanics.

On outboard and inboard props, if the blades appear to be somewhat bent or would require welding, then try to take the service from a good repair shop. And the repair job would cost you half the price of a brand new boat propeller.
