Re: As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

Thanks for the replies so far.

It doesn't *sound* like a tremendous amount of time in terms of work. 8 hours to sand the bottom? Painting can be done in a day, from my reading. Cutlass bearing,...

As long as the boat is out of the water . . .

I'm sure there are other threads like this, and I apologize if I offend anyone for posting it again.

I've got to haul my boat (1983 Cal 27) for cutlass bearing replacement. I tried to do it in the...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Just following up . . .

I contracted a local fabricator to make a make-shift press and tried to press the cutlass bearing out in the water. That failed miserably, so I've negotiated with the...

Re: Half day in Daytona?

I did not. I called half a dozen marinas, I talked to several companies renting other kinds of boats, and I did a ton of internet searching. The general consensus that I found was "no one rents...

Half day in Daytona?

I'm going to spend a week in Daytona and would like to get a boat for half a day. All my googling leads me to jet skis, pontoons, and captained cruises. Does anyone know someplace I can call to...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Exactly. With the shaft unbolted from the transmission the prop is still very hard to turn. From under the boat I could only turn it a half-rotation at a time by grasping both blades of the prop...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I changed the transmission oil a week ago and what I took out of the transmission actually looked pretty good.

The prop is *hard* to turn. I cannot turn it by hand from inside the boat. I can...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I'm heading back to the boat today to do some more analysis. So, I'm re-reading the thread getting my ducks in a row.

I came across this quote. That water is coming in with the nut completely...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Thanks again, everyone.

I'll do the rest of this diagnostic work over the weekend and get an recording of the noise. I've ordered a laser tach. I may get one of those mechanics stethoscopes,...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Good ideas, Bristol. Thank you.

I've never been quite clear on how to check the shaft alignment. Can you point me to a good write up on that?

And, what do you mean by checking the motor...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I do have a strut between where the prop shaft exits the hull and rudder. This is where the cutlass bearing is.

The transmission is easy to shift when the prop shaft is disconnected.

I have...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I'm still thinking about this. Please forgive my frequent posts . . .

It seems to me that if the cutlass bearing were worn, and the shaft was disconnected from the transmission, that the prop...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Another question about this . . . could there be something in tube in the hull that the prop shaft passes through? Is there a bushing or something in there? Could something have gotten in there...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Which is the one damn thing I can't do in the water.

Well, it can sit quietly until I can get up there and make another recording.

What, exactly, is a shaft log?

What other symptoms might I...

Re: Squeel while in gear

It's a squeal. Long, never ending, blood curdling squeal. A holy-crap something-is-bad-wrong-make-it-stop-now squeal.

I can't provide a video with the audio of the squeal for a while. It's going...

Re: Squeel while in gear

Good ideas. Thank you.

I went under the boat and found the prop difficult to turn by hand.

I opened the stuffing box and found less water than I expected coming in, but my expectations lack...

Re: Squeel while in gear

I've just checked my maintenance records and it's been an embarassingly long time since I've changed the transmission oil or packing gland. I'll do both today and report back.

Squeel while in gear

1983 Cal 3-27. Yanmar 1GM.

I've had this problem intermittently for a while, but it has suddenly gotten quite bad. Early on, on rare occations, a terrible squeel could be heard shortly after...

I am. I'll search and read.

That battery is older than the one with a full charge. It might have a bad cell. I'll buy a hydrometer. I appreciate the info with the appropriate specs. Had I known...

Re: "Voltage" light stays on

Excellent suggestions. Thank you.

I know the alternator is a replacement. Or, at least, a rebuild. I doubt that actually matters, though.

The alternator belt was probably tight enough, but I...

"Voltage" light stays on

The boat is a 1983 Cal 27. The engine is a Yanmar 1GM. I think the alternator is a replacement. I can't find a model number but it does say "Hitachi" on the back.
