We finally got the boat out of the water today and discovered the prop removal may be trickier than anticipated. The pin has completely corroded and so we can't remove it to unscrew the prop. Any suggestions?

If the pin is corroded to the point that you can't remove it then it will be weak, try bending it up so you can get the socket on the nut (the end might snap off as you do this) and try to undo the nut. The nut should shear the ends of the pin off flush with the thread, you can drift the remains out with a punch after you have removed the prop.

We managed to finally remove the prop today!

Essentially, the pin was so corroded, once we actually managed to locate a suitable wrench it was a pretty quick job.

So, the tubes still need some work, but at least the prop should be looking pretty good once Steel Developments have worked their magic on it :-)
