You'll have a 1" keyed shaft, Left rotation. As spares go, I wouldn't drop much money into one. So many for sale on here. Just get a used 3 blade for $50 or so to keep you on the water. Of course, by the time it gets to you, you'll have yours back, so sort of a waste.

As steel goes, I don't see the point. As far as I understand, a CNC'd nibril will perform as well or better. As for hitting things (which, as in mine, is clearly a possibility in your scenario), yes, you are more likely to bend things further up the drive train with a steel prop. Of course, if you hit something hard enough with a nibril prop, you can bend the shaft, etc., too.

If you want to try something new, try an Acme or OJ CNC'd 3 blade prop. If you know you'll be keeping yours, just do without the boat for a week and wait on your repair (or get a used 13x13 3 blade) for a lot less.
