Oh the joys

Doing final checks before lifting back in this weekend and wasn’t happy with the look of the nut on the prop shaft and will now be looking at lots of work and money for a new shaft 😩😩

Do you use a special type of anti foul on the prop? I read somewhere that regular antifoul wax detrimental to the bronze props.I may have dreamt that though. 

It was anti fouled by the previous owners as I have yet to use the boat as I have been doing her up but it seems the problem is due to electrolysis as I have checked the continuity between the anodes and the shaft and there is no connection, how long this has been like this I do not know.

Do you have a prop anode? I know some boats have tiny little anodes on the prop that last nowhere near a year. 
When I had my prop refurbished it looked too nice to go back in the water, it’s been in a year and a half now so don’t want to know how bad it is.

This has turned into a job and a half and ended up with me having to replace coupling, shaft, propeller, stern tube, cutlass bearing and housing. Looking at a bill of about 2k because the previous owner neglected the anodes.
