    So it's almost winter the 19th of December just around the corner. So might as well start stirring it up. Do stock powered boats really benefit form Stainless Steel props.

    Ok what did I miss? I would think they might benefit in certain circumstances and depending on the boat and power package. No???

    I’ve always heard you’ll have a little better acceleration out of the hole and a little higher top end speed. But if you ever hit something on the bottom, rather than simply destroying a relatively cheap (aluminum) prop, you could destroy the whole out drive.

    I can't believe there's still a large (37) center console in our harbor. All the other boats were out before Thanksgiving.

    Nope = the only thing i can think of is that it's awaiting sea trial to complete a sale. It's a 37 Midnight Express. If sea trial is pending they have sure missed some great weather.
