It would be pretty unusual if your Beneteau had a 1" prop shaft. It certainly didn't come from the factory with one. 25mm would be more likely.

There is no reason to ever haul a boat to remove or install any prop, be it fixed, folding or feathering. Here's how to do it, start to finish. Your French prop has some different attachment hardware however:

Give a call to the customer service guys at the Beneteau plant in Marion, South Carolina. They can tell you what prop should be installed.
