Re: Propeller, Shaft, & Stern Tube

Thanks for the responses.

My current shaft is 1.25" (31.75mm) I don't know what the original metric was.

Propeller, Shaft, & Stern Tube

My boat needs a new stern tube. It is a bronze tube, and has metric measurements of 52mm OD, 43mm ID, and 750mm in length.

Does anyone know where something like this can be had?

Thanks,
David

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

You can do it. Size doesn't matter too much. Bernard Moitessier was only 140lb and sailed all over the world alone. That's the about size of the average woman. He wrote several cool books also, so...

Re: Endurance 35 owners please ->
