High-Performance Four-Blade Props

Four-blade propellers provide the qualities ideal for watersports and other high-performance applications. However, the drawback of most designs traditionally has been a marked reduction in top speeds. Turning Point Propellers solved this problem with its uniquely engineered Four-Blade Aluminum Hustler Propeller.

Offering stainless steel performance at aluminum prices, this prop utilizes an innovative combination of blade geometry. Two opposing blades feature variable rake and aggressive pitch for precise cornering and impressive hole shots. The other two offshore-style blades maximize stern lift and the all-important top speeds.

Offered in 14 inches by 17 inches, 14 inches by 19 inches and 14 inches by 21 inches, the Four-Blade Aluminum Hustler Propeller has a suggested retail price of $129.

Durable Clothespins Grip Securely

The only downside of drying laundry in the fresh outdoors is finding items on the ground or floating in the water. With Bernard Engraving’s nautically inspired Sea Snap® clothespins, users can hang clothes and even wet towels securely on rails or lines.

These durable, oversized plastic pins now have bigger teeth for firmer gripping power. A wide hook enables the Sea Snap to hang from any 3/4-inch to 1-1/4-inch railing, including most home shower rails. 

Ideal around a boat or home, Sea Snap clothespins can be used to hang laundry from lifelines or other rigging, clip snack bags, organize wire cables and hang ski season’s wet clothes.

Available in yellow, teal and clear, Bernard’s Sea Snap clothespins are sold individually for $3.49.
