Rnli spare prop mount on d class

I believe the d-class boats mount their spare prop on the outside of the transom. This seems a sensible use of space.

So rnli gurus... Are they just on a bolt through the transom or do they have a special bracket?

I cut two D class up last year which had been abandoned by previous owner in a field and there were no special brackets on transom as I removed everything of interest. They were the older grey tubed type not black.

They have a simple stainless steel bracket , some boats had them mounted on starboard side outside of transom then later mounted inside just below engine clamps .
Twin engined C class had 2 satchel/ bags each ontop of each side of rear sponsons for the spare props . Click image for larger version

I believe that practice was changed sometime ago as the general philosophy is to have no sharp edges exposed on lifeboats

ID:	105792Thats right Ribochet everythings now inside the boat .
its basically a spigot & retaining split pin & then a cover plops over the prop to give some protection to crew .
