I think Kent may be referring to the prop zinc, not the prop shaft. I have one on my autoprop attached with three plastic bolts, and as Kent says, it always corrodes around the three bolts and can then fall off well before its useful life. I would also like to hear a solution to this.

Hi Kent, looks ugly. When your prop shaft zinks fell off did you replacen immediately. Also, the fact they just coroded around the stainless bolts could sugest limited contact with the prop. I have used cone prop zincs in the past and they corroded all over, certainly faster around the bolts. However for some years I have used shaft zincs betwen the prop and the c drive housing(i dont have line cutters) They have corroded relatively evenly.
