Propellers on a boat are an essential part of what makes the boat able to run and selecting the correct one when you need to upgrade or replace your propeller can be a daunting task with so many brands and propellers to choose from. Wholesale Marine carries a full line of props from leading brands including Solas Propellers. They have a Solas prop for most engine models.
Props are an integral part of your watercraft and withstand a lot of wear and tear day after day. Solas is a well-known brand trusted in outboard/stern drive propellers by boaters and marine technicians. When you purchase a Solas propeller you are getting a prop made with superior design and is crafted with the latest technology. Their research team meticulously seeks out ways to improve the props.
Solas Superior Propeller Materials
Solas propellers are designed to withstand the impacts props take from excursions out on the water including debris floating in the water, and beaching or docking your boat. Solas props are made with materials that are resistant to rust and corrosion and consistently outperform other brands in their class. Solas props are made from either aluminum or stainless steel. There are advantages to each and our Prop Finder Guide can help you decide which is best for your boat. Aluminum is more flexible than stainless steel but can become warped over time at high throttle speeds.
To make their aluminum models stronger and tougher than other diecast models, Solas uses a state of the art casting process and over 500 hours of testing to simulate over 6 months of normal prop use. Each Solas aluminum propeller is made with four layers of paint compared to most other brands who typically have one. These extra layers ensure anti-corrosion performance.
Solas Stainless Steel propellers can’t be beaten and crushes the competition. The stainless steel prop is made with durable material and is true stainless steel that will never rust. The Solas stainless steel propellers have the highest percentage of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum that increases the stability and durability of their props.
Solas Rubex Interchangeable Hub
The Solas propellers are made with an interchangeable hub system. This system is designed to eliminate periodic retorquing of the prop nut along with chatter and vibration that is often felt with other hub systems. Each kit comes with the hardware needed to install onto the prop shaft. The Solas Rubex Hub is made out of rubber and not plastic so it stands up to the harsh elements and not prone to deterioration. The hubs absorb shifting and shock when the propeller hits an object. All Rubex Interchangeable Hubs are reusable so if your propeller is damaged it can be used with Mercury Flo-Torque and Michigan Vortex propellers. Solas hub kits are easy to install with minimal effort.
