Brett Anderson, the 49-year-old former Mercury Marine and Mercury Racing propeller expert who founded BBlades Professional Propellers in Princeton, Wis., seven years ago with 20-year Kiekhaefer Aeromarine/Mercury Racing prop veteran Bob Lucht, is a little overwhelmed with catch-up work at the moment. He’s been back from the recent Miami International Boat Show for about a week, and he’s swamped.
“It usually takes a couple of weeks to clear the fog from Miami, and by that time we’re off and running for the new season,” says Anderson. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. It’s a good problem to have.”
