Take the short drive up i74 to Shelbyville In. to Marks Propeller Service and he will true you nibrals, does mine all the time, I bang a set every year it seems. He is the best and fair too. Props are always smooth as silk, he has me spoiled, the smallest vibration drives me nuts. It is common to see props in his shop worth more than my boat. He is involved in some real high end stuff and at the top of the knowledge scale.

PS. Troy Floyd at Pier 99 lives there and shuttles them back and forth all the time for people in our area.
