Prop shaft replacement price

Does anyone have a rough indication of how much it will cost to replace a broken prop shaft on a 135 Opti? (Yes I could phone an outboard place but its nearly 11pm....)

I think Rickuk3 might have a complete lower unit for sale if it's the same as the 150.

Well the 135 and the 150 are the same engine. I'm guessing the gear ratios are different though....

Quick bit of research and yes, the 150 is 1.87:1 and the 135 is 2:1

Just looking at a claim on a Yam 200hpdi with a bent prop shaft.

I think that the "best case" cost is about £1100.

Had a really bad day yesterday Left the RIB on a pontoon overnight. Conditions were awful - very very windy and wet, and consequently quite a bit of water got onto the deck of the boat. Not a massive problem; got down there, let the trunk down, and took it for a spin. All the water drained out, ideal. The plan was to put the boat back on the trailer, so was heading for the slipway at medium revs when I hit something in the water. Must have been a rock or similar, as there was a clunk. I immediatly switched the engine off and lifted it out of the water - there was a chip out of the prop. Not a particularly large chunk, but it had certainly hit something. Anyway, trimmed it back down, fired it up, but alas no forwards or reverse. You can hear the gearbox going into forward and reverse but the prop just doesn't spin.

It didn't hit whatever it hit at great speed, so I suspect there was already some weakness there from a possible previous incident - only had the boat/engine a week

I don't have a problem admitting if I have broken something; I hit something before at speed and broke a prop shaft but this was such a minor ding I refuse to believe that a 135 would break like this.

I am already talking to the private seller who sold it to me about various other issues which have so far which have taken about 10 hours to fix. Unfortunately he didn't look after it as well as CJL did.
