Yes boat name is tatoosh. Eileen is probably the one that does the website more than Doug. Doug knows the boat better than Eileen.

If you can not get ahold of them that way, pm me, I have email, ph number etc for them.

Hope that helps.

Measures at 1 and 7/16 inches between coupler and the shaft log.

That is using a caliper to test diameter in the inch between the coupler and log

I sent email to the info@ email address on their site - but still working hard to come up to 15 posts [without getting ridiculous about posting] so I can PM anyone - LOL

Think this is 12 - so getting close

That's a pretty beefy diameter. Are you sure the shaft is really clean at that point? (no salt encrustation, corrosion from a leaky gland?) These things are usually 1" or 1 1/4" as a rule....What engine do you have?

Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

Originally had the big Pathfinder from VW

Now have the Volvo D2-40, smaller, lighter and more horsepower up to 3000 RMS

Shaft was not changed out, is still original.

Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

It will be interesting to hear what the other I-P40 has.. we had a similar (but non production) boat with Pathfinder and it had the 1" shaft swinging an 18" Martec.. 1 7/16" is pretty big and not a 'standard' size in my experience...

Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

The mechanic who re-powered says that he thinks the shaft would be 1 and a 1/2 before he cleaned and polished it to put the new coupler on. Will have to see for sure when we pull the boat.

Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

Doug repowered his boat a year or so ago. Not sure about the shaft size etc. He also put a new tank in by a company in Bellingham, added about 25-30% to what he had from memory. Might do the same for mine, but it would be double, ie 7 to 15 if I can get a tank that size to fit.

Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

My original diesel tank under the Starboard setee was 35 gallons. It was shot and a semi-custom replacement was $1800. Moller has an 18 gallon poly tank [FT1809-1], not in their catalog, but available if you call that fits in same space - think it was under $300 including shipping. Half the capacity of the big original offshore tank, but if I ever go cruising I will put another 25 gallon tank under the v-berth. 18 is more than enough if you are not on an extended trip. I have the drawings and spec sheet for the tank if you want them - and can send them now since this is my 15th post. LOL
