Once again, I recommend you visit/talk with a reputable prop/shaft dealer/shop. The prices will vary dependent upon your specific boat requirements and your desire for basic replacement or upgrade. Be prepared for sticker shock as this is not an inexpensive part of boat ownership. The 4 bladed Michigan, 28 x 24, 2" shaft props I have as spares were purchased 7 years ago by the previous owner at a cost of a little over $5000.00 for both.

Thanks Bill but I still would like a backup set just in case.

I was not discouraging your pursuit of spare props, but only alerting you to the potential cost. Any reputable prop shop can provide the hardware you are looking for. Pea Pod is still being driven by her original props with satisfaction knowing spares are on board if needed.

28x24x2? Are you sure these will fit your boat?

Typo error...the prop size is 28 x 25 x 3, (dia.x pitch x blades) the originals..my boat is equipped with twin Cummins 210 hp and 2" shafts...
I've attached a listing from GB regarding shafts and props. But you've raised an interesting question....I assumed the 4 bladed spares were the same size, without verification..time to check the props...
