Dorothy and George Peter take customer service seriously. They have prided themselves for years that no matter the issue, they will work to get your boat working correctly.
Not only are they incredible to work with, but they are the only NMPA certified specialists in the area. That means their propellers will be taking you everywhere you want to go!

Give us a brief introduction to who you are and to your business (what you do):
We are Dorothy and George Peter, Owners of The Prop Specialists, Cool Breeze Marine. We are the only certified, most advanced and largest prop repair facility at Lake of the Ozarks.
Tell us about how your business got started:.
George Peter III (my awesome husband) started the business in 1992. He is a certified marine mechanic who realized that no matter how great the engine is, if the prop is wrong then it will not run the boat correctly. He went to propulsion school and bought an existing prop shop and the rest is history.
Why do you do what you do?
We love helping locals and visitors enjoy their boat. We’ve saved many vacations at LOTO because we are here for all your propeller needs.
What are some things that help you stand out as a business?
We are NMPA Certified. We have the most advanced propeller repair equipment in Missouri. Our facility has the Linden Propeller PropPress 360 with TrueProp Software. It is the most precise method for repairing inboard propeller. We do not use heat to repair propellers because that damages the integrity of the metal making the prop weaker. We give you back a better prop. We also have the largest inventory of new and used propellers at the lake.
What do you envision for the future of your business?
To continue helping people enjoy their boat and extending our services throughout the US. To help our boat race teams win more races. They did awesome at the shootout the last 3 years and we love making them go fast 🙂
What is something that inspires you each day in your work?
The happiness in the families face when they can get back on the water and teaching our customers about their boat. Educated customers are happier customers.
What are some great things about the local area?
We truly enjoy the community spirit at LOTO. We love connecting with other mom and pop businesses and supporting each other. We love giving back to our community and do a lot of work with Feeding Lake of the Ozarks, Wonderland Camp and Kids Harbor.
How can customers and consumers support local businesses like yours?
Shop local. I know the internet has a cheaper price, but Amazon isn’t going to accept your phone call late at night when you’re having a prop issue or come to your boat and help you out. Supporting small business also supports community charities, ball teams, boy & girl scouts and much more.
