prop aperture clearance

I've been looking at the many different props and need to start narrowing my search. If I could figure which props would actually fit in the aperture then I could further narrow my search.
Would any 31 owners with their boats on the hard be willing to give me some general measurements such as
1-center of shaft to top of aperture - top clearance
2-center of shaft to bottom of aperture - bottom clearance
3-from the prop hub (closest to the cutlass) to the rudder - fore and aft clearance

Regards,
Steve

I'd be happy to take those measurements, Steve. I hope to get to my boat sometime this week.

Steve:

I'm afraid that the snow and freezing rain we received in DC last night and the cold temperatures forecast for today and tomorrow have killed my plans for visiting my bot this weekend. I'll be traveling next week, so I'm afraid that the soonest I will be able to get those measurements for you will be next weekend.

Hi Al,
Too bad about the weather but I was bound to get nasty at some point.
This is my first winter here in NC, don't miss the New England winter yet.
The pic in my avatar was my last winter 2011 in Scituate Ma, it was a bad one,
It does fell a bit strange not hauling and laying up my boat but it is something I'll get used to

Thanks for thinking of me Al and whenever you get those dimensions will be fine.

Regards,
Steve
