Re: Propeller Shaft Log

Thanks everyone those are good suggestions. I'm going to tighten the nut a little tonight. Empty out the bilge and see how quickly it fills again by tomorrow. Then going away for a week so hopefully the auto bilge does its job.

Is it possible that from one-time to another of motoring, it will leak more or less? It seemed fine after one sail trip, then worse after another, then back to leaking less, now leaking more. I hope this is the only leak. The boat was hauled out a month ago for bottom paint and the cutlass bearing replaced, nothing else alarmed the fellows at the yard.
