Is it possible for a prop rebuild shop to change the pitch in my prop right now its a 13x13.75 and if I can spend 80 instead of 400 for a new prop Id rather do that been an expensive week for the boat already

I would like to hear more myself; I tried this when I dinged the prop and felt no difference. Ended up buying a new 1234 prop for a 211. Huge expensive difference and worth it.

A good shop should be able to change the pitch a little.

I'd not do it, since you'd lose all the benefits of a CNC propeller. An Acme Propeller that size should be around U$D300 with some discounts.

try www.boarditup.com, Karl, the owner there is a regular on this forums.
If not deltapropellers is a good choice too.
There are discount codes for many sites.

If you have a Acme prop you can send it back & they will re pitch it right. There is a Acme 525 on ebay right now for $249 13x11.5. I just picked up a acme 515 for $190 that had just came back from Acme themselves for referb . There are used deals out there, but if it's been dinged it might cost the same or more in the long run.
