Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.
the mainshaft oil leak here on sailnet, elected not to fix, confirmed to me that he never fixed it. Previous owner apparently believed it was just spilled oil from filling each time, but when two people haven't fixed a known issue and visible evidence of it still occuring... I'd say it's still there.
When you change the fluids, put a can of "seal sweller" in - sometimes it can help a shaft seal quite a bit.
Bleachy water is the best thing to get rid of mould in my experience.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
