Description:
A category to waymark static ship screws, paddle wheels and aircraft propellers on public display.
Expanded Description:
Waymarks can be:


Free Standing - Ship screws or aircraft propellers for public viewing. These are typically larger in size with no real historic information. They may be found in parks, marinas, airports or memorials.


This is an example of a large "Freestanding" ship screw located on Tybee Island, GA. It does have the weight of the screw, but no real information about what ship it is from. The information is nice to know, but it would not be considered historic.

Artistic/Repurposed - Marine and aircraft propellers that have been incorporated or turned into artwork, decorative displays or used for other purposes.

These must be located in areas open to the public, real and originally manufactured for their intended purpose, to be used on marine vessels or aircraft.

If the screw or prop is used in a monument or memorial it would not be considered repurposed, but fall under Historic/Educational.



These unique bar stools are purely an example of "Artistic". The thickness near the tips and lack of pitch suggest these are not real propellers and were designed exclusively for the stools support. Thus these would not be accepted. Thanks to Jake39 for use of this image.

Historic/Educational - Can be found in museums, memorials, monuments etc. Information about the waymarks origin, what vessel it served, importance, how it works etc. should accompany these.

If a propeller or screw is still attached to a ship or aircraft it must be visible and the craft stationary. Any additional details must be included in your description along with a picture of any markers or signs.
