New Prop

We now have a nice shiny new prop' made by Steel Developments. West Mersea Marine will fit it and do something better than we had for an anode. I'm sure the old anodes used to work but I'm equally sure the lost blade was due to galvanic problems. The yard told us back before the East Coast Race that it sounded broken but it worked all summer.

They used the old prop as a model for the shaft hole in the new one, but followed their own design for the blades.
