Solas props
when I bought my 05' enzo it came with a* Solas Stainless 3x13x13 prop. I tried it once and it seemed to run ok but switched back to the stock prop. I have tried some searches and found little to no info on this prop. Best I can match it up is a acme 425. it was brand new when I bought it and only ran it for a few hours.what would be the best place other than ebay to try to sell it? i'm looking to get a 911 prop for next season. thanks

I'm guessing ebay or the classifieds on here are your best bet.

You should be able to unload it pretty easily. Stainless isn't desireable to someone like me except as a spare, maybe, but a lot of boats used the 13x13 prop depending on prop shaft size.

I don't know what it is worth, probably not much, 100-150 max...

it is 1 1/8 I would be happy with $150. I'll get some pics and put it in the classifieds here first.

Similar deal. If you didn't know, stainless is undesirable for inboards as if you hit anything, stainless won't bend like nibral, it will take out your strut/shaft/coupler and that's a lot more expensive than potentially just a prop...

thanks for the ebay find.
through my searches i did read a lot about SS not being desirable for inboards. coming from an i/o a few years ago it was the complete opposite but have read the several reasons why. i guess it would make a good back up prop or a less expensive prop for someone to try a different pitch. also depending on where you boat; like me in lake Erie impacts are less common. i know they can still happen but the lake does not have much hidden treasures and is deep.

I prefered stainless over NIBRAL on my inboard. I rode on a river with a sandy bottom, and frequent random sticks/branches on the river......stainless wud slice right threw most of the junk....NIBRAL wud bend very easily.

I never had problems wiht shaft/strut bending. My thought was if I impact somethign hard enough , I'm going to do damage despite which prop I have

I agree with Adam. Our lake is all sand. Shallow in some spots, but sandy. There are the occasional small rocks. I found one in July, at idle and just barely touched it. Cost me $125 for the repair. Last year we had a stainless and it wasn't an issue. But I have also been on the lake for 38 years and no there isn't any dangerous spots. I agree that on unknown or changing waters its best to have a nibral.
