|New cutlass bear in front of the strut where it goes|
We had to haulout for an insurance survey. While out of the water, we discovered that the cutlass bearing was more than likely bad, as in shot, kaput, finish! Luckily, Tom had the replacement aboard. Luckily, Waterfall Marine (Chute D"Eau Marine, LTD) here in Coral Cove Marina boatyard could switch it out for us that day.
|Old cutlass bearing|
|Strut, zincs, line cutter, prop - all removed|
Remove the strut - not an easy task.
Removed the bearing - They did this in the shop so I have no idea how they did it but I suspect there is a little something to doing this.
|Everything back in place and ready to go|
And finally put the new one on and then put it all back together again. Whew! Thank you Sean at Waterfall.
