Prop Protector



Prop Protector rope and weed cutter

Protect your prop from being fouled by rope or weeds. The simple shaft driven rope cutter rotates with the shaft, which in turn instantly cuts any rope, weeds or debris picked up or snagged by the propeller. All Prop Protector rope and weed cutters are made from 316 stainless steel. There are clamp on or slide on versions for imperial or metric shafts. Clamp on rope cutters are available with an extra large blade version too.


The Prop Protector rope and weed cutter sits on the shaft, between the propeller hub and the stern bearing, waiting to cut anything that threatens to entangle it. There are no moving parts to fail – just a razor sharp marine grade stainless steel blade, ready to slice through most marine debris.

Prop Protector rope and weed cutters are NOT designed to be used with outboard engines, stern drive engines or Saildrives.

Prices correct as of January 2024. All prices are +VAT.
