Re: Furling Main Motor

Congratulations on buying the Maramu. My boat is #220 and as Joel stated has fibreglass coverings for the motors. The original motors and gearboxes are still in very good shape and have given us no trouble. I went completely through the mainmast gearboxes replacing all bearings and seals.
I have seen a few different types of gearboxes and motors on Maramu’s. I will include a photo of what mine looked like prior to the service work and painting. The motors looked almost like new when I opened them up. The last photo is after repainting/seal and bearing replacement.
