I have just finished servicing my 3 blade kiwiprop on my annual pull out. I bought it 12 years ago to replace a 2 blade volvo feathering prop on my Farr 1020.
I continue to be impressed. I repowered my boat a little time ago from the original Volvo 2002 to a D1-30, and transferred the prop. The ability to fine tune the pitch meant I could get the maximum out of the new engine.
After 12 years of use the prop shows very little wear. This year the rollers for realigning the blades in reverse all had stiffened. So there was a little chaffing on the blades. I had used a different antifoul last year. Perhaps this was the cause? Anyway, I freed them up, cleaned and greased according to the manual, and am about to return it to the water for another year of service.
Thanks for your excellent, innovative product. I show everyone I can how it works. It deserves far more recognition than it gets.
I’ll write another testimonial in 12 years if I’m still alive, because I’m sure the prop will be.
Thankyou for your very prompt service in the propeller bush matter. I have always found Steve and propeller warehouse excellent to deal with on advice, service and product knowledge. It is a pity you are no longer a solas dealer. I hope the new distributor is half as good as you people have been.

I bolted that prop on yesterday, and could not be happier with the results. Pulls out myself and 2 other mates deep water single ski start, and actually haven't lost any top end, if anything have gained an extra 5 km/h. Thanks heaps.
Thanks very much for your efforts. Our client has just received the propeller. Excellent and much appreciated service, you should ask your boss for a pay rise.

Dear Sales Staff,
My son Brad Marshall telephoned your sales department January 10th and spoke with a very helpful lady. My husband has been having problems with propellers on his little run about and Brad was making enquiries on his dad's behalf.
Outcome - propeller was paid for at 11:49 that morning and dispatched the same day.
My husband could not believe that it was delivered by courier at about 11:30am on January 11th, twenty four hours after paying for it.
Your company and staff are wonderful - great stuff!!!!!!!
By the way, my husband has only told about ten people who own boats but he will continue to spread the word about your great service!
Barbara J Marshall.
