Well

A 25mm shaft is .984 So the real issue is the angle of taper they CUT were the prop mounted which in all likelyhood is going to be different than and inch shaft and result in a bad fit if you cant find a metric prop

If you look around a BIT you will find the standard tapers are a LOT different

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
