looks like an unplanned haul out!!!!
The packing leak keep getten worse and worse, so i brought it to local shop and they said the reason i could not get it any tighter was cause the packing nut is already bottomed out, so there for, they must replace the packing and the will not do it on the water, and if they dont want to risk it, then neither do i,,,, so the first haul out for a new owner. what should i plan on doing while she is out...
All the threw hauls have the shut off valves and seem to be working fine,,, I have one transducer going threw haul, wich is for the speed o, but dont plan on using that type of gauge, so i think i am going to put a depth transducer in that location... and of course, if she is out,,, bottom job,,, is there anything else that i should have done while out in dry dock,,,, they might let be buff and wax the sides,,,, any suggestions on what type of compound to use,,, wax,,, any thoughts would be appreciated,,, thanks,
