cabacpa is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone:
On xmas eve I lost the propeller while entering the marina on my Gulfstar CSY42. I dont have the propeller specs I know the shaft is 1'' and the engine is a Yanmar 59. I will appreciate any information from other owners so I can order anew one before putting the boat on the hard.
Thanks,
Jose Caballero

My best advise to you is to contact a propeller supplier, such as Gori or Max prop, and let them figure out what is best suited for you, your sailing habits, and to your boat/engine, instead of trying to get what you had there before.

Prop tech has suffrered some evolution and sionce you need a new one, why not get the best?

Well, after checking things out, I put my refurbished prop back on today. Or at least the diver did. Was less than $200 including the diver. Would have been nice to get a new one, but with the new Wheel Pilot, having to redo the AC wiring including a new panel, and clean up the wet core at the rear of the boat to mount the davits, now just didn't seem the time. Appreciate everyone's input and I'm sure I'll make use of it down the road.
