Lost Propeller

I had a new shaft installed, and it fell from the vessel with the propeller attached. Anyone know the specs for a Cal 34 sailboat?

Perhaps the folks who made the shaft would still have your measurements?

BTW who did this install? You might want to warn others to NOT use them in the future. Loosing a prop shaft is unacceptable as it could have killed you or your family if the boat had sunk..

seems like replacement of all lost parts associated with the install should be the responsibility of the outfit that did the hack job on your boat...

All good points, thank you. The firm that installed the new shaft will stand behind the defective workmanship. We do have the old shaft specs. The challenge is determining the correct propeller. Tough to re-engineer, I'm hoping someone has the specs or even a photo of the correct propeller.

There is no "correct propeller". It depends on the engine/transmission you have.

After they reinstall the shaft and prop I would hire someone who knows what they are doing to check it - possibly a surveyor. The shop you used obviously doesn't.

What he said - go back to the supplier for warranty replacement.

This is absolutely correct.

So good luck with it all. It would have been a very 'interesting' time for you when it happenned.

Post your engine and gearbox details esp. the reduction ratio and someone will have a stab at it for you.

If I was in your position I would take the opportunity to upgrade to a variable pitch prop. MORE SPEED!
