I am having a hard time finding out what size my stern tubes are without taking the boat of the water and removing the old seals.
Thanks for responding, and Welcome Aboard.
Your seals lasted 15 years. Tempting to replace them with the same, if available, probably improved over 15 years.
Checked the seals fitted for any branding which tells you the size? Maybe the boat manufacturer can tell you. If you post details about your boat, someone here may have the answer.
We are still looking at my issue, haul out soon for a/foul etc will be an opportunity to check it.
