Bow thruster rebuild on a SM


Graham Boyd
 

Replaced the underwater seal on the plastic shaft (on which the bow thruster prop is mounted) and very quickly the oil was leaking out. I suspect this shaft has become so worn the standard seal is now too big.


1 Anyone tried just using a "tighter seal?


2 Any advice on a complete rebuild of the whole unit/ getting the parts from Amel? This is my preferred option.
