Prop installation tips

Fri, 03/27/2015 - 17:05
I am going to install a new prop on my Schiada. My past experience was:
1. See where prop fits on shaft w/o key.
2. Cut key stock to length. (Question? How long? I know, not to exceed prop dimensions)
3. Install prop with key on shaft and check position to where prop was w/o key.
4. Install NY-lock nut.

As you can imagine, the prop was $$$. I don't want to screw anything up for both safety and $$ reasons.
Your expert input is greatly appreciated.

Stringer washers

Fri, 03/27/2015 - 11:42
I am wondering if anyone knows what type of washer this is, what they were originally intended to be used for and if they might still be available. Dad used lots of them rigging the 1967 Belmont flat bottom and I would like to get more of them just to keep the boat the way he built it.

They are octagon shaped, 1-1/2" from tip to tip for a 3/8" bolt and they are cupped, or conical, or spring, or compression or whatever. I thought they might be fender or bumper washers or even something electricians might have used back then. I've looked up everything I could think of online with no results.
