Re: [Amel] Rope cutters

We encountered the same concerns as we sail in Maine during the summer time and the spurs are too small and zinc repacement is constant. We ordered the following line cutter Shart Shark Cutter and the shaft size is included.
I have received word back from UK that the Autoprops are made to fit a ISO 35mm shaft. So therefore you would need a Model #400-35mm unit.
List price $430.00. “Show price” $387.00

We will install this March when we haul the boat. This company also services the Autoprop in the US

Subject: [Amel] Rope cutters

Hi y'all, We have had Spurs rope cutters on Pen Azen ( SM 302) for ten years. On a couple of occasions we have encountered fairly thick rope and the fixed blade has just snapped off. Spurs replacements are expensive and I am now going to try a different solution, a single circular blade made of two semi circles which bolt together. Whilst they may not cut as well as the Spurs cutter I expect them to be more robust, and they are much cheaper. We are away from the boat---question: Can anyone tell me the diameter of the prop shaft on an SM? Happy Xmas, Ian and Judy, Pen Azen, SM 302 Snow bound in London
