Hi all
    I obtained a 16 X 11 prop from a German outfit called Geboote24 (or similar – Google will find them for you) for 181 Euros ex VAT. Fitted a couple of weeks ago at RAF YC scrubbing grid. I did away with the rope cutter which had once again damaged and loosened the anode. We also scrubbed and antifouled Thunderbolt at the same time.

    She now absolutely flies, helped by being cleaner no doubt but very pleased with the performance. Faster through the water and turbine smooth. A total success for not a lot of money. Interestingly a new prop cone, spacer, anode and various fixings cost £107.00, nearly as much as the prop…
