Prop Bush

Where's the best place to get a prop re-bushed, just spun one tonight?

How much is the going rate?

I had fantastic service on the spinelli i span from prop evolution. Prop revs asked me what a spinelli was. Cost me about £150 but that was for a new bronze bush, full lab finish and a couple of little dinks taking out, including 2 day delivery both ways to guernsey. Not bad at all if you ask me!

Bring it down and I will take it to Streamline props for you, If you have a new hub he just charges £25 to weld it in - and he makes a great job. Jeff is a good prop chap and will do a deal!

Gazza,

Boat looked good before the bush went, people were commenting on it, seeing a fast boat on the Forth is rare, apart from the round Britain ! Would be good to get a race around the islands (May isle & bass Rock). Elie hosted a Group 4 Powerboat race back in the 70's...

quote from history of club:

"During the 1970’s Group 4 Power- boat racing became increasingly popular. At no time did the Club restrict its membership solely to owners of sailing craft and there was by now a significant number of motor craft of various sorts based at Elie. A Powered Boat section of the club was formed to satisfy the requirements of these members.

The sport of Group 4 Power Boat racing had been well established in England for some time and was gaining popularity in Scotland. Elie Bay was an ideal venue for this kind of event, which had a high spectator value, and it was agreed that approaches should be made to see if the regulating body would consider Elie for at least one event.

One Club member, Dr H Harvey, led the quest for such an event and spent endless time and his own expense in negotiating sponsorship by BP for the events, dealing with the necessary arrangements with possible participating clubs and placating the authorities that had to be made aware of the Club’s intentions. Competitors arrived from Wales, from All Hallows in Kent and from the West of Scotland, where similar events had been held on the Clyde off Gourock.

Scottish Television advertised the competition and a truly staggering number of spectators attended. One event was marred somewhat by the familiar “haar” (sea-mist) which obscured much of the action. The competitors themselves were pleased with the organisation and the facilities, and there were promises of support the following year. Unfortunately at this time action by OPEC put up the price of fuel to a prohibitive level and interest in repeating the event gradually dwindled."


I watched fly pass end of harbour, next min you were going round the fishery protection vessel, where i notice a few flashes from the deck!

Hopefully you get it fixed soon, and i get a ride in it.

regards

S.
