Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Furling Gearbox Differences
Yes, Bill, as I said, "the plastic caps/plugs are fine". Perhaps as annoying is the failure of the finish, as some have pointed out. I recall Kent had some of his parts powder coated. Better yet, as Joel encourages, use that water maker and rinse off the seawater as often as possible.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I had a slight amount of dissimilar metal corrosion between the stainless steel grease fittings and the cast aluminum gearbox housing. Using plastic/nylon/delrin screws/bolts is a good idea if you want to keep it looking good.
