Cotter pin?

Good morning,

I should be out on the water now!

I put my Westerly 26 in forward (engine started +running well) and nothing happened. Reverse, nothing happened. Opened up to look at drive train and the shaft was spinning nicely, gears shifted, shaft spun in other direction.

So............

Break it to me gentlly. Am I going swiming?

I din't hit anything the last time I was out. Do these pins in the props just rust out? Anything else it could be?

Thanks for any help. Oh, the engine is Volvo MD 2B diesel.

Rick
