Pulled the u-bolt for the lower shroud today. Core definitely soft and wet.

Great info from all. I'm slowly gathering enough courage to work up to this. (After pulling the chain plates and checking for lack of moisture).

I guess my main thought is: does it work?

Great info, thanks. For the drilling and filling, what's best to use for the injecting? Standard small syringe, or something that's able to push epoxy for large distances under pressure?

Should I...

Thinking back, the boat used to creak alarmingly while sailing before we replaced the standing rigging (one of the reasons why we did so). This creaking seemed to start after battling through a nasty...

It is dangerous. By extending the length of the snorkel, you are increasing the amount of air that you have to pull in before you get fresh stuff. So each breath has more CO2 than you should expect....

What make/model of OB do you have?
