14"x9P LH bronze prop. The picture indicates that the tips of the blades are bent over. While this might look quite similar to the prop on the 1st boat I ever had after I cut a corner way too close in the Willamette River and went through a very low rocky area, this prop is intentionally that way. Apparently some prop repair guru in the SF Bay area swears that this is the latest, greatest thing for slow trolling. I believe the boat is quite under-propped for cruising and will be experimenting with a proper replacement prop. What you also can't see is that the zinc on the prop shaft is against the forward face of the strut. The prop shaft has come loose in the transmission coupler and the only thing that prevented it from coming totally disengaged when the boat was put in reverse was the zinc coming up against the strut!
