Propeller Manufacturing

Bollinger Shipyard’s Propeller Shop is a modern 27,500 square feet fully-equipped manufacturing and repair facility featuring pitchometers and four hydraulic presses with up to 400 tons capacity that allows straightening and re-pitching propellers of up to 20 feet in diameter without heating the metal.

The shop’s computerized pitchometer is capable of measuring pitch, blade widths, diameter and rake. It also creates a detailed image of each propeller blade, that indicates the exact point of required work.

This dramatically reduces propeller survey time, provides more accurate measurements, reduces overall time in the shop and improves propeller performance and efficiency.

Bollinger Quick Repair has been in the propeller manufacturing business since the late 1940’s. We have over 2,000 propeller patterns in stock and the capability to make a new pattern in 10 days. All Bollinger propellers meet or exceed ABS requirements. The shop also services other industries such as municipal drainage systems with huge impellers. Storage of customers’ propellers is also available.
