Re: Propeller Shaft Log
You might also consider installing as second automatic bilge pump, as recommended by Boat/US for a boat your size...
Not a bad idea. I would also put a cycle counter (like this
) on every automatic BP you have.
...If the water in the bilge bothers you, you could also convert to a PSS dripless shaft seal.
Those can, and sometimes DO, catastrophically fail.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
