How did they conclude it was your fault that the leading edge came off?

I had a leading edge come off of a prop less than a year old. Took out rudder drag link through the deck and a six inch crack in the bottom. Company would not do anything as a matter of fact hung up on me. I only wanted help replacing the prop not repairs to my boat. After that i swore off wood props. You never know when they get a bad shipment of wood and that makes it your fault.

I've heard good things about the Q-series and you wouldn't have to get a new hub. The new H-series 3B would be nice to if you wanted to go with a 3 blade, that thing looks mean.

PM me if you want me to get you prices or call me @ 813-714-2123 ask for Jake

it is threads like this that make me glad I only use Sensenich. Don will take care of you if you have a problem. If I was you I would call Don and tell him your situation and I am sure he would let you use test a prop as long as you give him a credit card number until you return it. 813-752-3711

NOT ALL water walker hubs will accept sensenitch blades .... so be ready to buy a new hub as well if you are not lucky.
Don't waste your time ... it is the only thing you can't get more of
.. if it accidentally looks like I gave advice please ignore it .. and notify me immediately
