This is a Vetus coupling that is remanufactured by Amel. It is only available from Amel.
Unfortunately, they are closed until the end of the month.
The coupling is very strong, and I am surprised it is broken.
Have you disconnected it to see if the C drive is jammed with something?
Did you run into something very substantial with your prop?

we are currently stuck n Rockland, ME after hitting a lobster pot and fracturing our Vetus Coupling. In addition to replacing the rubber bushings (Vetus kit #K018), I also need to replace the broken aluminum hub assembly (two pieces) and possibly new 8 cm bolts.
Does anyone have Vetus part#’s and possibly a US Supplier to FedEx my order?
many thanks to this great, supportive group.
