    Dam it,-- ive done a silly thing.

    I have an anode hanging on a wire at the transom hooked up to the shaft.This is temporay untill haul out when I shall fit a fixed anode on the rudder

    I ran the engines and forgot about it --I heard a banging noise and it stopped. I pulled the anode into the port prop and damaged the leading egde of the blades well 3 of them.

    A small nick the size of a finger nail is missing from the leading edge -right in the middle.

    I know that bronze props can be reapared easily but I was wondering about increasing the props diam by 2 imches while they were at it.

    I have seen them revive the most chewed up props but surface props are extremely thin on the leading edge.

    Does anyone know any thing about such an operation.
