Njord's clean prop - all shiny and looks almost new. The new anode will be fitted later which is a sacrificial piece of metal that saves the prop from being corroded and eaten away.
It is a three blade folding prop and before we left Marina di Ragusa it was so heavily fouled with large molluses on each blade that it would not open without scrubbing and gentle persuasion. This year the sea water is hotter than usual and with record temperatures of 48.8c in Sicily recorded only days ago for the Med the growth is fast and unbelievable.
