Hub Kits on the Cheap

Waiting for a flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas, where I’ll grab a rental car and hammer through the desert at ludicrous speeds to reach the Street Fair at Desert Storm in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., before it closes at 9 p.m.. So I’m looking through this week’s batch of press releases that didn’t immediately fall prey to the delete button and I’m surprised missed this one.

BBLADES Professional Propellers based in Princeton, Wis., is offering good deals on Mercury Propeller Flo-Torq II Hub Kits until the end of the month or while supplies last. Two styles of kits are available:

•For Tempest Plus, Trophy Plus, Revolution 4 and Bravo I propellers, kit #835257K6 is $35

•For MerCruiser Alpha & Bravo One drive packages less than 400 hp and Mercury, Mariner and Force outboards from 40 hp through the entire Verado line kit #835257K1 is $30.

Not exactly huge news, but it might fit the bill for those looking to do a little “spring tuning” on the cheap.

Internet connections allowing, I’ll be reporting from Desert Storm for the next couple of days.
