Re: Santorin C Drive leaks

Hi Volker,

I was on a voyage from Grenada to Panama when the oil in the reservoir became milky in colour. I had a long way to go so I just minimised engine use and Hauled out when I got to Colon at the Western end of the canal. No trouble in the 10 years since. I change the seals and wearing bearing at each 2 year haulout

Regards

Hi Volker,

Amel uses now SAE90, 15/40 is also ok, but no ATF!  ATF is used for the gearbox, not for the drive.
