Thanks! Very timely on this. We hauled Cream Puff today and will be doing the prop, Amel drive and bow thruster this week.

 

 

 

With best regards,

Mark,

Yes,

I think using RTV on the propeller shaft seal improved the water tightness. Blue or Clear works. 

I guess that I should update the instructions in the files section.

Bill,

I am a little confused (very normal for me). Are you saying to use blue RTV on the lower oil seal behind the prop? I was aware that RTV should be used on the upper 80mm lip seal inside the locker, but not the lower lip seal.

With best regards,

Mark

Alan,

Amel sent the following seal for the bow thruster shaft:
Paulstra
792521
IEL 30. 42. 7.
MI 1 VY

When installing it, use some RTV on the outside edge of the seal and make
sure that it is pressed all the way in. The space for the seal is about 9mm
deep and the seal is 7mm thick.
