Why You Need a Prop Guard

 

One of the worst sounds up there with the sound of a dentist’s drill, other people snoring when one is trying to fall asleep is the sound of the propeller grinding on the rocks or gravel. There of course are habits to try and prevent this from happening and for some that might work but for the lesser fortunate there is always the option of a device to help protect the propeller from incidental grounding or from hitting debris in the water. These devices are called prop savers, propeller guards or propeller protectors to name a few. They all have one thing in common and that is to try and protect the propeller from damage. A propeller protector is not limited to outboard motors and are available for sterndrive units and inboards as well. There are several manufacturers of propeller protectors, and they all claim that the addition of the units does not jeopardize performance in any noticeable way.

 

Outboard Motor Prop Guard

 

Outboard motors have the most choices when it comes to prop guards. This has to do with the speed and the horsepower. A slower and less powerful outboard does not require a sturdy and robust guard as for a sterndrive of 300 horsepower. An outboard motor prop guards such as the mac's prop saver or the river runner manufactured by ‘Mac's Prop Savers Inc ®’ are easy to install and video installation guides are readily accessible on the internet.

 

Propellers

 

If one was unfortunate not to have a prop saver and a new propeller is required, then follow the links provided to get the best deal on a replacement propeller. The handy propeller fit guide is very helpful if one does not know the replacement part number or the size.
