Ok I don't fully understand the risk in changing from a locking screw thru the domed nut's flange into the prop hub (ie along length of shaft) as was original; vs putting the lock screw through the side of the dome nut into a dimple recessed into the shaft thread (ie perpendicular to the shaft). I'm thinking of supporting this second arrangement with a tab washer & blue loctite to the nut's thread. Maybe at the next haul out I can get a pre-warned yard to drill cotter pin holes thru the shafts in situ. Sound like a reasonable approach?
