Thats how myself and my knowing friends install prop nuts, I don't think they are going anywhere. Yes my boat was built for Wallace Leeman, I think I am the 4th owner, I plan on hanging onto it for quite a while. The volvo had a few minor issues when we got it, but is running well now, Maybe a rebuild some time in the future, I think its good to go for the coming season.

I hate to tell you this, but you and your friends are doing it wrong. The half nut isn't the lock nut. The whole premise of the full nut (which IS the lock nut) is to take the load off the threads of the half nut. You can keep them that way if you insist, however I wouldn't be caught ever doing it that way. Not even as an April fools day joke.

On my twin screw BF, "big nut" last!

I'l guess in the yard right now in Salisbury Ma. storage yard that MORE 1/2 the boats including big DEs will have small nut on last!

Next week I'll take a walk around, do a quick % count LOL

Funny how common this is (I've been found guilty too). A few years ago an EXTREMELY experienced prop professional gave a seminar at my fishing club and explained the dymanics in detail. I'd guess that if you do a count in a yard you'll see about 50/50... lol
