Propellor Covers

Hi all,

I'm after a propellor cover for towing, just they seem difficult to source having done a quick internet search...

In particular I'm looking for one that goes over the prop itself as opposed to the bag type that goes over the gearbox and mid section - does anyone have, or know where I could get one?

Would welcome anything with 'Yamaha' branding, like the Mercury Racing ones if anyone's seen one anywhere?

Thanks, Sam.

I'm sure it does Paul!

I just want mine to look as tidy as it possibly can, the Mercury Racing prop covers seem to be quite a 'fashionable' accessory amongst the racers so thought a Yamaha equivalent would be cool if I could find one, or at least a non-branded version...

Cheers, Sam.

Well I saw 55 mp/h this morning on the GPS, which I don't reckon is too bad for quite a heavy leisure rig with a fairly fuel efficient Yamaha 130 that's sat on the transom...

Regards, Sam.
