Your photo does not illustrate these pieces.The factory parts list set #0087 shows the aforementioned hardware included in photo and listed as included in the set.
Set0087 does come with the prop, pin, washers and the nut.

Hi,I currently have a 3 blade Vetus thruster prop. I ordered a replacement 6 blade # SET0087. It fits in the thruster tunnel extremely tight and is larger than the 3 blade. Have you run into this before? Suggestions? Do I need to trim down the blades? also, the tunnel is bottom painted quite heavily. Should I sand down and trim blades if needed. My concern in trimming the blades is will it effect performance?
I'd sand down the tunnel to provide some additional clearance, I wouldn't trim the blades unless you are less than a 1/6th inch clearance.

I have a Vetus Bow Thruster 50 kgf and would like to replace the propeller on it. Do you sell or can you obtain a propeller for this?
Yes we have it in stock (at the moment), use the drop down to choose the BOW50 if that's the one you have.

I have a Vetus Bow Thruster Approximately 15 HP.It hase a three blade broze propeller.I believe the current model in your catalog is a BOW22024B.Does Vetus offer an upgrade composite multi blade propeller that will fit my existing thruster? If so, do the benefits warrant changing the Propeller?Thanks,Jim McMathTEL 843-987-3120
Our Vetus Rep. said "BOW220 is a 15hp thruster and the correct prop is a BP1053." You can contact customer service at 800-423-0030 to place an order.
thrown two prop kits within ten hours of use over 18 mos in the water. last time prop shaft sheared at gear house almost $1k to replace. whats wrong-- corrosion or just plain bad design.
