I need a prop for my southampton tugboat

Does anyone know the size prop for the Southampton tugboat? One of mine fell off in the water ( I know, I should have tightened the nut). I got mine from otherlandtoys in the UK but they don't have them. I'd go with brass props if I knew what to get or where? Right now, I'd take anything as I'm dead in the water.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Are you in the USA?
Harbor models, Ships and Things, Loyalhannah Dockyard should all have a
three blade propeller that you can purchase to replace one or both propellers(if it is twins)

Cornwall Model boats in the UK should also have a good variety of propellers available.

Just measure the dimension from the center of the shaft to the hull and allow for
2-3mm of clearance and size your propeller appropriately. I am not sure what the
threading for the Southampton will be, but there are usually two options in threads also.

i think the shafts of the southampton may not be threaded, so changing to a set of 4mm brass and stainless shaft would also be a good start

I have been trying to find a replacement for mine too. I may have to change the shaft and stuffing tube, due to the fact that I can't get the props off mine. the set screw must have had a whole bottle of thread locker applied!!!
I have a call into Don at loyalhanna and he is searching for me.
Aloha
