I am looking for a 30mm dogged propeller for a 4mm shaft and I am having trouble locating one in plastic or metal, it is for a fun race boat so CCW turning.

Can anyone help (based in UK)

Thanks Roy

Why a dogged prop? Got an alignment problem? Dogged props can be very noisy physically and electronically so I usually avoid them if at all possible.👍

Thanks for advise.

The new shaft I bought (aluminium tube & skeg with steel shaft has an aluminium dog setup) I thought it would be best to use it, otherwise it means using a normal prop on a short thread as don't have thread cutting equipment.

I looked at Cornwall MB but their sizes start at 35mm.

Hi CB90

Have you tried Dave Marles at Prestwich Model Boats?

He is an expert on this sort of thing and he fixed me up with a prop for my Proboat Blackjack recently.

Its worth giving Dave a call as he may know where you can find
one even if he has not got one in stock.
