Re: Propeller Shaft Log

It sounds to me as though you got a pretty good deal although the materials probably only cost around $100. A new packing box, tube, hose clamps etc. is about $80: PACKING BOX ASSEMBLY BRZ 1" SHAFT 2" HOSE 103450
New packing material is around $20.

Having confidence that your boat is not slowly sinking is priceless and having someone else go through the contortions to do the labor seems well worth the $450 for hauling and labor.

I'd say the yard was more than fair. Haul and launch around here for a Cat 30 would be $300 or so, $100 in parts. Sounds like they didn't charge much for labor. This is one job that's a real pain on a C30 - Caleb's right about the contortions. Access to work on the engine is great, acess to the stuffing box is a bear. Mine was also seized and it was impossible to get a wrench on it. Replacement makes a LOT of sense.

Sounds like you've got a good yard.

Re: Propeller Shaft Log

Having the same with mine right now. Bilge on every hour or two. Found the same symptoms under my floor. A lot of blue green corrosion on a nut and washer with a steady stream just a bit more than steady drip. Adjustable? or Worn the f out? Coming out of the water in the next 3 weeks for bottom paint and zincs... Do it your self? parts avail easy enough? Vancouver BC... Would like to have it all ready to go as I hate the boat sitting waiting for parts....when the weather is nice enough to work on her we end up going out sailing instead!
