Westhaven propeller bandits

Recommended Posts

Sail drive bits look ok, though the prop has been off for a while , if you want a good price for replacement contact me. I would suggest that the installer did not read the instructions, as some 'professionals' dont not far North of Auckland.

Was thinking more the fact that the anode has been coated in prop speed so therefore became decorative only.

Next thing to fizz away I would imagine would probably be the prop nut?

There should have been an anode on the Gori as well, and no split pins on saildrive prop! Yes whoever did the prop speed needs a talking to.

What was the time frame for that growth?
Presumeably, he got in the birth on that prop. In forward or stern first?

Got to be under the boat/ thereabouts.

Or he’s telling porkies/senor momento.

Hmm I once volunteered to help my daughter drop some hydrophones.

Her being a qualified skipper and all, I though I’d show how good I was reversing to the gps mark. I had forgotten to either put the split pin in the nut or left both them off, prop shot off into the turdgid as soon as I hit reverse. Took us awhile to get back on the aux.

Nice end to this story.

Seller has made a claim on his insurance and apparently a new prop is winging its way from Sweden. 

He had a diver look for it in/around the berth with no luck.
