Prop protection

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a product to protect your propeller from being ground away by sand when launching from a sandy beach.

Or is it ok to use something like duck tape on the leading edge? Would it effect performance?

I saw a carbon fibre prop yesterday with only 30 minutes use off a sandy beach. Let's just say the prop was no longer new :shock:

It seems that as you run you kick up sand behind you, straight into the prop.

Cheers
