    I always use a grub screw to lock my propellors where possible. I have lost a few myself mostly when using reverse.

    Me too Colin, but it was only a cheap plastic prop, which wound itself off my destroyer on the lake wall! I did go down and look for it when they drained the lake for cleaning. No sign of it☹️
    Now HMS Hotspur has brass props with lock nuts and Thread Lock.
    I'll also be fitting Prop Guards!!! Cheers, Doug 😎

    I use threadlock on all my metal props, and on larger ones I drill and tap for a grub screw in the side of the prop body. I've only lost 1 prop since 1956.
    Cheers Colin.

    How do I stop losing brass propellors coming off my boats when putting the boat in reverse.
