thanks Joel,Yes your absolutely correct
about the fishing boats.  The marina also has many derelict
boats and live-aboards on vessels well past their prime.  I
will pursue the galvanic isolator.  I wan't sure about
the grease coming out of the bottom of the gearbox, but
I'm one to investigate until my confidence builds.  it
turns out there were "dry" pockets within the
gearbox, and the upper bearings had significant rust and no
longer turned smoothly.
Thanks for the history and
Peter de
