Going Rate - Prop shaft

Molly is getting a new starboard prop shaft - AQ19 1.5 shaft 122.25 long. Im curious about your experience. Whats the going rate for a new shaft, which would include having my supplied coupler fit and faced to the new shaft? Im not asking about labor to install.

Im sure prices vary. What should one expect?

Thank you.

The price of the shaft is one thing, and I would have guessed about $1,000, but it might take lots of work to remove the old one and install a new. Worst case you will have to drop the rudder to pull the shaft out.

Yes, Ive pulled the original prop shaft, replaced the cutless bearings and stuffing box hose, and now Im ready for the new shaft. I managed to actually raise the rudder a tad, which enabled me to slide the shaft out...just.

The shaft was pre machined for the prop taper and nut, it was to be cut to length and machined for the coupler with a new key. Since the shaft was already a length, I am sure I would have been paying for the unused portion of the shaft also. They would have had no use for the excess length they trimmed off. I don't recall how much excess length there was in the shaft.

I bought a 115" 1.75" aq 22hs (not sure of the alloy???) all machining and split coupler, somewhere around $1300 a few years ago.
