    Having had A89’s propeller jam twice in 2021, firstly due to unseen underwater tight rope at West Mersea piles and secondly due to huge clumps of kelp in the River Orwell, we have decided to make and fit a propeller protector. Nick suggested 8mm stainless steel rod welded to a shoe at each end and bolted through both propshaft skeg and rudder skeg.

    My question: Does the propshaft skeg have vertical bolts through it, to hold it together, as they might clash with my horizontal through bolt. AOA drawing A24760 is inconclusive.
