Sounds to me like a used shaft in SAE (US demenisions) is your best way to go, as it will give you much more in options as far as props and hardware. It may not be what you want to do, but lets look at what went wrong in the first place;
1. You lost all the hardware that holds on the prop
2. The zinc is no longer attached ?
3a. The prop fell off while under way ?
3b. The prop is gone.
5. The prop shaft is damaged ?
6. The prop shaft threads are damaged ?

Buy a shaft and prop and move on, and perhaps increase your mantinence on the shaft/prop/zinc assembly in the future.
Good luck

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

On a vessel of that age, might he need these anyway ? I would think that loosing a prop, while the engine was running might have caused damage to these parts with the assoc. vibrations caused by a loose prop nut/prop.

OK. Here's where I stand. I've ordered the 25mm prop nut, lock washer, and anode from Beneteau. ($50.00) I've been advised they'll fit. When they arrive, I'll go swimming to confirm fit. If that works out, I've found a 12 x 8 LH with a 1 1/8 inch bore ($200.00) and a bronze reducer bushing ($86.00) to take the bore down to 25mm. If it all works (we'll see) then I'm back out sailing for $386.00. Less than an new prop, new shaft, new cutlass bearing, new stuffing box and new coupling... say $900.00-$1,000.00

Wish me luck!

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!

There are online shops, with all sorts of Beneteau used parts, in France. They are cheap and ship.
