The fact that major marinas, dealers and end users in the Midwest demand Linden Propeller as their primary provider is a testament to the high standards Gary and his team have set for their company.

Gary has over 32 years experience in all major aspects of boat maintenance, of that thirty years, 28 of them have been specializing in propeller repair and modifications. As well as the understanding of resizing and calculating propeller applications. He learned his craft from the ground up: welding, straightening, balancing and refinishing inboard, and outboard propellers including propeller analysis. Attending every school and seminar that was available all over the country. He is recognized as an icon in the propeller business throughout the United States.

Gary also served as President of the National Marine Propeller Association for three consecutive terms.

We are a major distributor of high-quality, innovative products from Michigan Wheel Corp., Hy-Torq, Mercury Marine, Quicksilver, Acme Propellers, Power Tech Propellers, Turbo, Volvo Penta and others.

We offer in-house repair, customizing and redubbing. Along with Strut bushing and customize welding procedures.

At Linden Propeller we utilize the Hale MRI along with our own patented straightening machine referred to as the Prop Press 360. the result of which is an extremely accurate three dimensional pictures of a propellers camber, rake, track, and pitch can be corrected with the aid of our patented Prop Press 360.

Problems while away from home? Not a problem. Linden Propeller has established relationships with quality propeller service providers throughout the country. And only those who are from an elite group of the NMPA. One call to Gary and a stranded client can be hooked up with a new or repaired propeller in a reasonable period of time. On the domestic front, propellers are shipped via UPS, Federal Express and common carriers throughout the continental United States.

As a charter member, and actively holding a seat on the board of directors of the National Marine Propeller Association, Gary is serious about staying on the cutting edge of propulsion technology through continuing education. Aligning ourselves with this professional group of engineers, Naval architects, and propeller specialists keep us in front of others who are not involved with the NMPA and committed to their business.

"We do everything possible to maintain long-term relationships with our customers," Gary explains. "We don’t cut corners on anything in customer service, or repair procedures. We are not a part time business running out of a two car garage..We have a very focused crew. If we promise that a job will be completed by a certain date, we’ll do whatever it takes to fulfill that promise."
