Thanks for all for the advice

Hi, You can get it rebushed. I did the same about 15 years ago hitting a mud bank at 25 knots. Limped home at 6 knots.

I believe steel developements did the job for us.

Good luck !

I will be in Scotland today and will be talking to a chap who has a P22 aluminium prop but no P22. If he is prepared to sell I'll PM you his contact details.

Definitely get it rebushed. As Tim said, when I owned a P22 we lost a whole blade (driven in too close to Camber slip) and I was grateful to have a spare prop on board, very easy changeover.

We used to store the spare prop in the engine compartment off to one side, along with a bucket on a bit of string to hang below the leg. Pete7 was the speedy prop change expert, but I could do it pretty quick.

While you're having the old one re-bushed, consider having it re-pitched as well. Depending on the engine in your P22 it's possible to get a quite healthy increase in top speed when lightly loaded.

You mean with night falling and being stuck 10 miles south of the Isle of Wight in the middle of the English channel, praying you don't drop the prop nut. We used to carry a small block of wood to jam in between the prop and the ventilation plate.

I had one prop taken up to 23" which gained a couple of knots.

Deffinately carry a spare, we had a bush fail on an old prop too.

Props made in Italy and imported by Stillette but its a closed shop and they won't sell one as retail instead prefer to sell lots to Lancing Marine.

Apparently Mitchigan wheel no longer make the props and the company that made the re-bushing kits stopped as it wasn't worth it, too few sales.

Wondering if it possible to get to find a re-bushing kit with the correct splines and if the outer is smaller than the original then make an alloy bush to pack it out - or just get a 2nd hand spare!

No point in changing size or pitch as I'm looking to take 8 bodies!

I think you will find that the old BMW drives used the same props, but can't be absolutely certain, so that might help find a bush.

I did spot that ddpacifics in Somerset had some props on their website recently. If you get anywhere with re-bushing your old one let me know?!
