bronze propeller

This refurbished bronze propeller, 74" diameter x 60" pitch, weighing close to 1 tonne is fitted to a 125 foot fishing boat of 460 tonnes. The boat, which previously worked off Nova Scotia now operates mostly in West Australian waters. It was put up on Brisbane Slipway and the propeller bought to Maryborough for alteration to suit a larger Engine.
