I have a 1996 Catalina with a 1" bronze shaft and a bronze Flex-O-Fold prop. I decided to remove the prop and I had one hell of a battle getting it off, using a prop puller, even though it's only been on for 3 seasons here on Lake Ontario. My question is there something I can put on the shaft such as anti-sieze that would allow an easier removal in the future? I understand the taper fit is what keeps the prop from spinning on the shaft not the key.
