It would be unusual for a prop to be installed with a "cotter pin", they are usually set onto the shaft with a keyway with a nut after the prop with a splitpin to secure the nut.

The chances of a keyway stripping to a point where the shaft runs without the prop are pretty remote so I reckon you're going shopping soon.
