If its just an adaptor to switch to the volvo long hub prop, then its just a bit of lathe work. Need to spend a day down at Foulks boat scrap yard. they have an ISO container full of old props, so a volvo ought to be available.
Des, the only other source of original props will be that bloke in Plymouth Nev mentioned a while back or the scrap yard in Portsmouth.
You have me thinking about ratios now, I will measure it when she comes out for the winter. My SMC 807 was dreadully slow to accelerate (before it fell off) compared to a lancing 16.75 x 21 which makes me think it was about 25". I have 2800 revs with the lancing prop, didn't get chance to check the revs with the SMC before it failed.
