Re: Vetus Coupling Failure

This is a Vetus coupling that is remanufactured by Amel. It is only available from Amel.

Unfortunately, they are closed until the end of the month.

The coupling is very strong, and I am surprised it is broken.

Have you disconnected it to see if the C drive is jammed with something?

Did you run into something very substantial with your prop?

we are currently stuck n Rockland, ME after hitting a lobster pot and fracturing our Vetus Coupling.  In addition to replacing the rubber bushings (Vetus kit #K018), I also need to replace the broken aluminum hub assembly (two pieces) and possibly new 8 cm bolts.

Does anyone have Vetus part#’s and possibly a US Supplier to FedEx my order?

many thanks to this great, supportive group.
