I have had mine repaired at least two times, and it is just about as good as new. It does not look new, but who really cares, it is under the boat.
The first time a couple of the blades were bent over about 1/3 way into them. The second time only the tips were damaged, and a couple of small chunks were missing. Both times they were fixed great, so I am not affraid of a repaired prop.
They can also add metal where there is some missing, so you won't lose diameter.
I got mine fixed by beauman marine, here in houston. I know that does not help you in cali, but I am sure there are good shops there.
