This refurbished bronze propeller,
74¾" diameter x 60½" pitch, weighing close to 1 tonne is fitted to a 125
foot fishing boat of 460 tonnes. The boat, which previously worked off Nova
Scotia now operates mostly in West Australian waters. It was put up on
Brisbane Slipway and the propeller bought to Maryborough for alteration to
suit a larger Engine.
