Worth a visit, try to go and collect.
One of the very few (only ?) places where you can actually go into the workshop and see the stuff they are working on.
Last time we were there they had half a dozen seriously mangled Thames clipper props awaiting repair.

Bent a "P" bracket sometime ago, all the other repair outfits stated it was not possible to repair and helpfully suggested they could supply a new one .
Invicta invited me over to their 50 tonne press and with little heat and some magic bent it back into shape while I watched.

+1 For Invicta
Clements wrote both my props off as non repairable. Invicta respired them both.
Put lots of people their way since and only had rave reviews back.

I want to highly recommend Invicta Marine. They fixed my "unrepairable" propellers in just a few days at a very good price. I am very happy with the result! I have left the propellers in their place as I was working on the shaft coupling problem, and just go to collect today.

Pictures attached.
