OK - update on the prop situation...

In the botton RH corner of the photo are the bits of rubber which look as if they had melted/worn away from the outside of the rubber bush:

Richard, I don't suppose you noticed any drop-off in performance during your trip to Alderney & back - could you have snagged a rope/net briefly which would have "snatched" the prop but not got tangled up on same?

No - definitely not. It was quite a trip - I reckon that the prop spent more time out of the water than in it (trying to keep pace with an 8.5 you see ) so unless the fishermen were setting nets for flying fish, I reckon we were well out of their way!

Perhaps that's the answer then - the prop revving nicely when in the air and then dropping back into the (solid) water so often.

Was it a new or s/h prop?

Well, my thoughts entirely. However... We were OK on the way out, maxed 41kts with quite a bit of time airbourne. Return was different altogether... 22-25kts with a lot cannier driving required (Daniel taught me a few things) but the failure happened in flat calm water after a bit of a "breather" rafted to Liquidator to transfer the scruvey crew. Then it all went pear shaped after gentle acceleration to 46kts.
