It sounds like there is something going on in the gearbox. I'd suggest you take it to a professional.

I'd go and see a pro. Most will be able to tell very quickly if it is something trivial (like needing adjustment) or major (like needing the gearbox stripped). Remote diagnosis over the internet is going to be slow and not necessarily result in a fix.

PS. I'm fairly sure there is a rubber bit around the shaft on that prop.

TBH if you do not know the difference between a split pin and a shear pin stop messing and get it to a professional marine engineer ASAP

Wise words - sometimes it takes the internet to make me see sense
I will take it to the pros...
