Smith wrote:Your propeller probably has a pressed-in rubber hub that is supposed to slip under extreme load, similar to the function of a shear pin. These hubs can lose their compressive force and start slipping even under normal loads. If that is the case here, an outboard shop or a propeller shop can press a new hub in for you. Last time I had it done, it wasn't expensive.
