The boat model alone may not help as it may have been re-engined at some time and had a stern gland changed at the same time.

You can't beat a vernier across the shaft, metric and imperial can be very close but not close enough to keep a rope cutter clamped.

A stripper should be matched to number of blades too (although mine are not).

It has a bmc 2.5 engine I wanted to order a rope cutter before I have it lifted to remove something I've got on the prop is the shaft the same size as the shaft that leaves the hydraulic drive?

Yes.

It will also have a standard length keyed taper, according to the shaft size, so as to fit standard propellors. I believe Connoisseur fitted shafts of 1.5" diameter to these boats.

In my experience, a cutter will not be of any benefit to you, on the Broads. You say you have something on the prop. It may just be a plastic shopping bag.

Thanks for that my boat is in Yorkshire and I've picked up a bag with some clothes in it as I've got a piece of white plastic and part of a tee shirt off so far
