"Prop is out of draw" Spanish Expression

The yard where I keep my boat in spain has just emailed me saying
"noticed that the prop is out of draw and must be changed"

I dont recoginise this terminology and it may be confused in the transilation

The boat is all but new having only been trucked down there this easter when we used it for a week and since then it has been in secure inside storage. The prop hasnt hit anything and when we left it seemed in perfect condition.

Anybody got any ideas what they may be trying to tell me?

Perhaps your prop has been buying lotto draw tickets without your knowledge and they haven't bought any recently

- sorry not a clue

My RIB is in dry berth here in Spain & I have never heard the expression. I do notice though that the boats that they know are laid up long term have their props removed & stored elsewhere.

Where in Spain are you? I notice looking at this forum that Ribbing here is very different, we have never been out in anything but shorts & t shirts. Biggest improvement on boat is the bimini top!

Cheers & sorry couldn´t be any more use.

Can anyone use the RIB in Spain? If not then you could rule out anything relating to Cavitation, out of balance issues etc.

Other than that, contact the people looking after it and ask them to be more specific?

Post their reply here

NO!

But everyone in the civilised world speaks English

Doing a bit of reversed translation on Bablefish I came up with the word "Drainage" instead of "Draw"
