The wearing bearing that is causing your problem is a service item.
All Amel owners should take note that this item should be changed
every 800 hours. Its an easy job that any qualified mechanic can
handle. As to the amount of time that you wait, keep in mind that
salt water has entered your gear box. Obviously not a good situation.

that as the level is not very high there is no problem but theyadvised to
empty as much as possible the oil/water mix and put some freshoil. You can
remove the mix with a pump from the plastic bowl.t=ms&k=Sailing&w1=Sailing&w2=Sailing+yacht&w3=
