if you damaged the protective tabs around the wheel,  i used s heat gun (hair dryer) to bend them back into place as one side was blocking the wheel

Thanks. I managed to get those straight from underneath the boat (went under water). Just used some pliers. I can actually feel the paddle wheel is broken.

They go down through the hull and screw in from inside the boat, so you should be able to access it somewhere.

Thanks. I’ll look in the bilge and follow the shaft as far in as I can. Only other place to access is where the center drain plug is and that does seem a bit forward.

its in the vdrive compartment on port side of vdrive, look at its relation to sea strainer under boat and look at fresh water intake on starboard side of vdrive and as on the bottom,  its on port
