Cant remember which way it comes out .. in either pic 2 or 3, but there should be a rubber collar inside , which could be the bit thats got minced up, check that first

i have here another laser 2 prop with flo torque (comes from optimax 200) - I suppose this prop will fit also the mariner?
I will test this first next weekend, to check if it's the hub or not

if you are actually getting the revs as you say but not the usual speed asociated with those revs on your boat then sommat after the crankshaft is slipping surely. Either the spline connection to the drive shaft, the prop hub or perhaps the boat is heavy for some reason such as waterlogged foam under the deck and the prop cannot push it so it is losing grip with the water and slipping more than usual there.
