Re: Sledgehammer saga continues

Captain's Cove was where I saw them lift on the shaft. They always dropped it back down but often had trouble getting the slings in the right spot.

I'm not sure how to avoid paying whatever I...

Re: Sledgehammer saga continues

No, it's in Vancouver, relatively new and the service company moved here from Granville. I haven't asked many people for recommendations but usually they recommend places on the island.

Re: Sledgehammer saga continues

I've had requests for the name of the service company but I don't have enough posts to send private mail.

Re: Sledgehammer saga continues

Not a cable adjustment. It doesn't even hit the rudder stop on that side because it hits the hull first.

I was watching and they used the Sea-Lift to pick it up enough the let the rudder drop...

PSS Bonding

I'm replacing my PSS prop shaft seal. The old one was bonded by running the bonding wire underneath the 4 clamps. Is this desirable/necessary?:confused:

Re: Cutless Bearing Sledge Hammer Installation

Maine Sail

Shaft and coupling should be OK. I went directly to the machine shop that does most of the local shafts and had a new shaft made and the coupling fitted and faced.

I'll install the...

Re: Cutless Bearing Sledge Hammer Installation

I hesitate to name the business as I haven't negotiated the bill (It's in North Vancouver). To be totally honest, I found a greasy piece of 2x4 with 3 or 4 impact marks. I guess when I arrived...

Cutless Bearing Sledge Hammer Installation

So I came back to the boat yard to find the technician pounding in my new cutless bearing with a sledge hammer on the bare face of the bearing. I got a little perturbed since I had already asked his...

If I can order a shaft and hub assy ahead of time I'll...

Motor mount replacement

My 1986 O'Day 40 needs new motor mounts.
The mechanical work is familiar but I've never lifted a motor in a sailboat.

The first thing I learned is that the prop shaft needs to be disconnected!...

R&D engine mounts

I need to replace the mounts on my Westerbeke W46. I've seen some negative comments on the Bushings Inc mounts. Does anyone have any experience with the R&D brand?
