Re: Water coming in at shaft

I gave this some thought while driving home. The leak only occurs when the motor is running. The leak appears to be coming from above the stern shaft. The water heater fresh water supply was disconnected yet the leaks appears to be clear and not green antifreeze. Antifreeze levels in the engine were...

Re: Water coming in at shaft

Although this looks like the culprit I have a bore scope on order and will look at the muffler.

Re: And it begins

Well since there is a wee bit of snow around the boat I figured I might as well remove the water heater. Back is feeling better and the 12-f helps to keep thing numb.
