Hello, for my first post I have a question, for various reasons I need to pull my driveshaft and motor
, install additional batteries where my motor
I do understand that an inboard is definately the best instead of using an outboard
to power a 32 ft ferro
sailboat, however that option is not availabile nor will it be for many years to come.
Am being forced to leave NZ and head
, by Immigration and need the best information for safely plugging the hole where the shaft was.
I have mounted a new Yamaha 15 on the back of the sailboat, and plan on reuseing the shaft, prop, etc later to install a proper motor and transmission
I do not want to leave the shaft in the boat.
My thoughts were a shorter s/s shaft with new forward and rear packings, anode in the boat and outside the boat to keep the shaft in place, any advise would be appreciated, thanks Ron
