 No issues with the floppers in fwd or reverse, chuck it in reverse when sailing to stop it spinning.

Prop speed the shaft, but not the anode - it won’t work of covered in prop speed.

To make the prop speed stick, you need to key the surface, ie. make it rough by sanding the surface, which will be bad news for the nice shiny surface.

Neil C . How simple, I could have thought of that!
Matte . Interesting about the anode. Hopefully the mussels will get spun off! Yes the gloss is going.
