"Austral Props"
To Steve King at Black Dog Propellers

Sorry I am just now letting you know how very happy we are with the remarkable results in performance upon installing the Austral props...While you shipped these to me in January, we just got the boat back in the water 2 weeks ago..(our bottom job and "touch up" ended in a complete 100% re-paint and upgrade...) While you may not remember our conversations, you suggested I try the Austral 21x24 nibrals to replace my bronze Michigans..And I really can't believe the results..!!! These are just totally smooth (I really didn't think my others were too bad until I ran these..) at every speed...we are 2+ mph faster at displacement speeds and planning @ 2200...!!! (compared to 2500+)....at 3000 we are 4-5 mph faster and can still turn 4100 rpm with the Glendinning on...!!! You had suggested the Australs had a bit different blade shape for mid-range speed improvement, which I'll admit I took with a "grain of salt"...but no more...I am one hooked customer...these are simply fantastic...and, the results are based on previous comparisons before I needed a bottom job, and we were 3/4 full of fuel and water when I ran home..!! I have recommended you to several folks at our dock, (Robert Peery may have ordered from you), and I will be sending my old props shortly for you to balance as spares...again thanks for your help. As a lifelong boater I can assure you that initial cost is not the problem with repair/replacement work...time spent in fooling around and multiple lift charges to correct is... It is a great feeling to find something works just as represented...
Our sincere thanks......Henry and Ann DeVan

Steve...please feel free to use me as a reference...it would be a pleasure to recommend your shop......Henry
