The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I'm cleaning out the shop and found my Dad's old Gori folding propeller. It still looks good, with only a little bit of surface corrosion here and there.
    The problem is that it has a plastic bushing/sleeve that separates the inner part that slips over the shaft from the main outer part of the propeller, and this plastic bit appears fine, but it had deteriorated enough to allow the prop to spin relative to the shaft when under load.

    Does this have any value to anyone? As it is now, it is clearly UNSAFE, but I hate to throw away such a magnificent chunk of Bronze. It is FREE if anybody has a use for it.
