This Grand Rapids Michigan Bronze Boat Propeller measures 15.5 inches in total diameter. The pitch is 16. We know this by the marking on the top which are 15.5×16. It measures 7 1/2 inches from the center of the hub to the edges of the blades. The hub is 2 inches in diameter, and the width measures 3 1/4 inches. This brass ship propeller weighs just over 9 pounds.
There are several makings on this propeller:
Hub side 1: 15.5 x 16, TPS 12471
Hub side 2: 1 1/4
The shaft: 90610, Grand Rapids Mich., and 15LH133
This is a vintage bronze propeller, pulled from a real vessel. Both sides are photographed.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
