Re: Bow Thruster lip seal

Craig Briggs

SOG is the manufacturer (SO Giant Oil Seal Co, Taiwan - a major supplier) and I'd guess whoever got that spare erred in getting one without a totally embedded metal insert.
SKF is another major manufacturer and you might try their HMS5 RG style that is nitrile covered with a single lip. Need to specify stainless steel garter spring. Try Florida Bearings or Miller Bearing near Ft Lauderdale. SOG also has a totally covered style. These are commodity items with many manufacturers. Mrs. Google will help.
Cheers, Craig
PS They also have a style with the garter spring encased.
