We had constant
issues with our bow thruster and a small amount of water coming in. I followed
the directions for the service to the letter and for a few months it would be
dry. Then, slowly the drips began and over time would slowly get worse. I found
myself having to change the seals every 6-months to a year.
I changed Jose’s
seals in Galapagos before crossing tp French Polynesia. So far, the area is
bone dry! 6 months now.

I am ordering 10 pr (min order size) of the silicone BT seals pioneered by Jose
Venegas a while back. Although I have not used them myself they are apparently
quite effective and I am anxious to install them on Liesse (if I ever manage to
see her again). I will have an extra 4 pr at USD 81.00/pr. plus
shipping for anyone that would like a pair or two. If you have specific
questions about them I would refer you to the archives. Private message
me if you are interested. Thanks.
