At the threshold the aircraft floated above the runway and did not seem to settle to land. It then dropped suddenly to a hard landing, bounced and as it came back down seemed to settle on the mains. However, the nose wheel must have touched and the propeller contacted the runway. After the second bounce the pilot powered on and went around to complete a successful landing. After taxiing back to the hangar and shutting down, the damage to the propeller became evident.
