I just picked this up on another forum.....

There is a notice of closure on their website.

All is not lost though, as the gap has been filled.......

I do not know the ins and outs of it all, but the person on the facebook group originally kicked off the prop shop outfit, from what is shown on facebook it looks nice kit.

Simon Higgins is Protean Design and it was him who started Prop Shop. I have bought props from him since he left Swann Castings and can confirm that the quality is still the best you can get and the prices are now much lower than Swann's. Details are

I have had props from Simon from before and during his association with Swann, and even after they went up in price during Swann's reign, they were beautifully made, some cast but always well balanced, and I wouldn't buy any others....he designed special propellers for my Ambulance launches, and sponsored my Loch Ness charity sail by donating 2 x 92mm specially made 3 bladed props for my Clyde lifeboat.........

Simon is a superb guy to deal with and his products are beautiful.
