with all the different sizes being reported you need to go inside and measure them with a caliper.

I am sorry about the wrong shaft size. I have a 1 3/4" stainless steel with 25X25 Bronze 3 Blade propeller. Don't forget about the rubber cutlass and the stuffing box. That would also be a good time to check. The engine is a Volvo Penta TMD 40 A

If you have every had your boat surveyed all that information should be in your paperwork.

I am just starting my search and the Le Bella 43 looks like it would meet my needs. I found a 82 Bestway Le Bella with Volvo Penta engines with 2518 hours. I do not plan any off shore , just weekends traveling up and down the east coast in land waterway.

Can you give me any pros and cons on the Bestway Le Bella 43.

Hard to give you more specifics without knowing age, engines, asking price, location, etc.
It is a 82 with twin Volvo Penta diesels with 2518 hours. It is currently in south Florida
