Wholesale Marine is proud to carry the full line of Solas propellers for all engine models. When your boat's propeller begins showing wear and tear, or has outright broken, it is the perfect opportunity to upgrade. Solas is one of the most well known and trusted names in outboard/stern drive propellers! When you buy a Solas propeller, you are purchasing a state-of-the-art prop, made with superior design and craftsmanship. Solas' research and development team is constantly seeking out new ways to create the best boat propeller; and with Wholesale Marine's Prop Finder Guide, it's easier than ever to get your hands on these world-class propellers.
Solas' Superior Propeller Materials
All Solas propellers stand up to collisions better than the competitors', and Solas propellers' resistance against rust and corrosion outperforms all the others in their class. You can't go wrong when deciding on a Solas prop, however, you will need to decide if you want an aluminum or stainless boat propeller. Aluminum is more flexible and resilient than stainless, but can get warped when exposed to higher throttle speeds for long periods of time.
Solas uses a state of the art squeeze casting process to make their aluminum propellers stronger and tougher than traditional die cast products. All Solas aluminum propellers have four layers of paint, as opposed to other brands that typically have one. Superior coatings and high-tech painting processes ensure excellent anti-corrosion performance on all Solas aluminum propellers. To ensure quality, Solas aluminum propellers are exposed to over 500 hours of testing in a salt water spray tank. This simulates more than 6 months of normal salt water use!
Solas Stainless Steel propellers crush the competition. Solas Stainless Steel Propellers feature the industry's highest percentage of chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. This combination of materials resists rust from salt water and increases the stability of the propellers.
Solas Rubex Interchangeable Hub
Solas Rubex stainless steel or aluminum boat propellers have an interchangeable hub system. Each Rubex hub kit includes the hardware needed to install the propeller on the propshaft. The advantage to buying a Solas Rubex system over competitors is that the prop nut does not require periodic re-torquing. The Rubex Hub system is designed to eliminate chatter and vibration often found on competitive hub systems. Because the Rubex hub is rubber and not plastic, it is not prone to deterioration. These hubs deflect 10% for softer shifting and reduce propshaft shock when the propeller strikes an object. The best part? If your propeller is damaged, Rubex Interchangeable hubs ARE reusable. All Solas Rubex Interchangeable Hubs can be interchanged with Mercury Flo-Torque, and Michigan Vortex propellers.
