On holiday up in the highlands and went astern with mucho mucho gusto to avoid hitting a buoy and no drive as the prop went for its own holiday. Thanks to my mate on his sib he rescued me and the prop.
The prop had come off over the nut and pin sliding off its rubber cush centre with no damage to prop or shaft.
The issue I have is that the brass lock thrust washer was not fitted as with it on the castle nut will not go onto the shaft enough to allow the split pin to be fitted by a country mile. The rubber Cush is fully in the centre of the prop. I have only recently put it on and been lucky that I have lost it next to the beach.
Photos below shows what was left
Photo below shows with everything fitted and the nut is just on
If I take off the stainless washer forward of the prop then it would fit but need advice please
