Propeller Repair in Twin Cities

9 posts in this topic

I am getting ready for the annual Rainy Lake trip and the main prop for our boat is a bit bent. No vibration and no missing pieces but still a bit out of line. We will have 3 guys in the boat this year instead of 2 so I was thinking it may not hurt to get it straightened. It may get up on the water more quickly and it may add 1-2 mph to the top speed.

Does anyone know where I can get it straightened quickly and affordably here in the Cities? Is it even worth doing, as it doesn't show any signs other then the slight bend?

Thanks in advance.

FishinDubs, Definitely!!! UPS it to Soderblooms! I've had 3 repaired, 2 through Jay. His prices (including the shipping) were still less than I could have it done here 'locally'! Plus, his service was quicker & the workmanship better. That was before he was an F.M. sponsor!! I'm all done having the local 'marine shop' repair the dings, dents and balance my props. Give Jay a try, He's VERY knowledgeable in his craft and takes pride in his workmanship. Try him once, you'll see what I mean. Phred52

Formula Propeller in Brooklyn Park (on 81 just south of 94) does good work locally. You'd have to call to see how quickly they could get it done. If you Google it they're easy to find.

I've used Lance's Prop shop up in Forest Lake and just this weeks used a marina down on the croix. Can't remember the name of the marina but it's on the WI side right where the Croix meets the Sippi. Both were around $50. I've always heard that Soderblooms does great work as well.

I packed it up and sent it to Jay today. He said I would have it back next week. Excellent service.

Thanks to all who responded.

Well I made a mistake and used a delivery service that took 6 days to go from Maple Grove to Cromwell. Time is of the essence so I thought I may be pushing my luck sending it to Soderblooms. Turns out Jay had it back to me in 1 days time! It looks brand new and it was resonable too!

Kudos to Jay and I highly recommend them if you need any prop work done.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
