The consequences of a boat not fitted with rope stripper can be varied. Engines wrenched off their mountings, stern gear and gearboxes damaged. These photos were from the gearbox of a Mussel Industry vessel, wherein no rope cutter was fitted to the shaft. For more protection to the gearbox, a rope cutter and flexible coupling is suggested to be fitted.

At best, a rope around the propeller is inconvenient. Emrhys Barrell tests seven rope cutters to find out if they really can keep your prop turning. Rope cutters can free you from a knotty situation, but which is best for your boat? I waited for the line to sink and engaged forward gear to leave our marina berth in the Mediterranean. I should have waited longer. Back in our berth, I cut an 8ft length from the end of a hosepipe, attached one end to a stanchion, put the other in my mouth and stepped off the stern to investigate.
Welcome to the Ambassador Marine web site, home of the number one solution in preventing propeller fouling, the Stripper propeller protector. The Stripper has been the market leader in protecting propellers from ropes, weeds, netting and other hidden dangers under the water's surface for over 25 years. The Stripper has now been redesigned to protect against cavitation greatly increasing the life and performance of your propeller, whilst still providing its excellent rope cutting capabilities. The secret to the Stripper's success is its design, allowing even the smallest model powered by a small boat engine to cut through large ropes with ease, without putting large stresses on the engine, gearbox, propeller or mountings.
