I've tried this in the past. The cleavers on both of my boats are over 17" diameter, a std 5 gallon bucket did not fit over either.

I made some out of aluminum sheet metal. I made a cylinder 18" diameter x 8" tall. There is enough thread sticking out of the output shafts that you can weld on a bung. They just screw on. The issue is because they are rigid, they take up a lot of space, but after i hacked my leg up, figured it was worth it before one of my kids takes a header on to the props!!!!

So I have someone who will make these would there be interest in buying some if I have him do a run of a dozen pairs the steering wheel cover would be stretch material with a elastic band pretty simple. The prop covers themselves nylon bag with 2 layers of kevlar all bound together with a draw cord. I may have a embroider emblem in the bag to hold material in the center. trying to keep them under 100 bucks

I'm switching to 18" cleavers on arnesons. Would also be interested! Was planning to design something myself if someone didn't beat me to it.

I found these on Amazon. Won't fit 18" but the company might make a bigger size.
