Help! Metric prop shaft creating road block! 1972 Dufour Arpege.

I can't seem to find any local shops willing to deal with getting a prop to replace the one I lost over two weeks ago! Help. I don't think I can afford a new prop shaft, cutlass bearing, stern gland and coupling just to switch to a 1" prop shaft. And no one wants to venture a guess as to the right diameter and pitch to the prop without seeing the old one. Well, if I hadn't have lost the old one, I wouldn't need a new one!

I want to go sailing again. HELP!
Lawson
