Ask yourself "What is the worst that can happen if that cotter pin breaks from crevice corrosion...or the cotter pin rots the prop" and then see what repairing that is going to cost you, and figure out how many years of cotter pins that repair would pay for...

That's why I have AAA Plus for my car and a TowBoat US membership for my boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
