Here is one from the USA, not sure if they would ship to you in England, no harm in asking, it might not be too much in shipping costs? For Your Outboards & Stern Drives - Prop Guard propeller guard

I had a prop guard on my last boat was a great piece of kit, saw very little reduction in performance, just remember to buy the correct one for your engine size

One on eBay is only at 99p so may get a good bargain on it and will sell if you ever want to as only one race legal
