Posting this for an owner of a MK2:

Hello there.
I am trying to find out the distance from the center of the end of the 7/8 shaft to the hull please so that I know how big a propeler i need to buy.
I also am trying to find out the exact width of the key way thats on the taper of the shaft.
Ive looked everywhere in the forum and black arts and have gotten nowhere! Can you please help me with this information or point me in the right direction? It would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards
Edmond

Choosing a prop based solely on the distance between the end of the shaft and the surface of the hull won't give you enough data to make a good choice. There are too many other variables to consider - that's why we have the props page, so people can list their choices and their degree of satisfaction with it. If you're buying new, let me say I've had good luck with manufacturer's suggestions.

I will try to get a keyway dimension next week.

The keyway on my old shaft measures 0.25 inch wide and the key is 0.25 deep.

This matches the spec for an SAE 7/8" shaft given in this table.
