Re: Hard dingy- pool noodle fenders

I use them. They do need to be covered as they will decay quickly in sun. So canvas is the go. I used canvas drop sheet. Fire hose is a really good idea if you can get it. By covering it has lasted...

Re: Bukh 32 rear main oil leak

Hi Compass 790
Just for your interest.
Well I've almost finished the job of replacing the seal. It's either been blown out or wasn't set properly in the first place. It looks undamaged but I...

Re: Bukh 32 rear main oil leak

Hi Compass 790,
Yes I did check the breather and it was venting. It vents to the inlet side of the turbo. The odd thing about all this is that the volume of oil leaking has reduced to a few drops....

Re: Bukh 32 rear main oil leak

Hi Compass 790

Thanks for your reply. The engine is now 8 yrs old has done under 3000hrs, oil pressure is 30psi as per spec. So I'd be unpleasantly surprised if there's a cause other than a faulty...

Re: Rattling noise from propeller area
