My AT, with a 380, should get about 2.1 gph at 8 knots, 1400 rpm aka hull speed.
7knts. 1200 rpm, 1.4gph, 6 knots 1000 rpm, 1 gph. with 400 gal of diesel, I can go a long way at 6 knots but, it will take a long time to get there too.
Hello Bermuda, anyone home?

That would be okay in my old boat, as I would still have another engine. Might have rather large hole in the hull, but would still have that other engine! That is a horrible visual.

Hey guys, have any of you had issues with your dripless shaft seals on your NP? I noticed on a recent survey that he noted "seawater mist coming off propellor shaft dripless seal". It is original seal so is 7 years old. Possible just poor seal between steel collar and graphite flange? Should be replaced at 7 years? Maybe collar has slipped and lost compression from bellows?

Could be all those things. Mine was replaced last spring, it was 2007 vintage. Was OK, but had shaft out, so just replaced.

I am Phil! Was out cruising and now settling in back at the dock - I'm usually around these days. Way out the end of I dock in Discovery harbour.

No leaks on my 2010 NP43 Shaft Seal. However, at some point I should probably look at what parts should be replaced (bellows?). I'd rather avoid problems.

If your replacing the bellow, you want to replace the whole dripless unit, which comes with bellows.
I'm going to have a good look at this one on Friday. I'm starting to wonder if the collar as slipped and the bellows no longer have the required tension that is required. There is a measurement for the compression of the bellows. I don't know the make of the Dripless so I can't look that up yet.

Cheers

A bit over 1000 hours on the shaft seal.

Oh, that's funny. Karen asked me if someone mentioned about a boat for sale on this forum and I said yes. Someone must be trolling the site and I just ignored it I told her. I went back and had a closer look and it was you too. Glad to see your still sailing the seas. Is that your boat for sale?
