Brian: Stbd SB has always run cool with zero drips and we try as we might, we couldn't get any wriggle between shaft & skeg bearings on Stb side I don't intend to disturb this. Will re-check Stb bearings at next haul-out in 2 1/2 years: at least now I know what to look for and what's involved/required to address (and who to go for: amazingly I've only been able to find the one spray-welding shop in Sydney and the various marina guys I called around to prior didn't even know of this one !) I did mean to ask about your original (still current?) SB's...are they like mine, bolted direct to aft bulkhead...or did/do they have flexible rubber hose components?
