NAIAD 252 with Multisea II controller and 7sft Fins. I have spent a fair bit of time talking to NAIAD.

Taras,

Back to your issue. The cost is going to very dependent on the condition of your shaft, bearings etc. There are people who have improvised the tools to remove the fins etc but I wouldn’t recommend it. The boat needs to be lifted and someone experienced with stabilizers etc needs to do the work. You don’t necessarily need to go with a NAIAD recommended yard. Whereabouts are you?

My 2000 Grand Banks 42C has Naiad stabilizers - installed new by Stabilized Marine in Ft. Lauderdale. 954-797-7330. I highly recommend them if you're anywhere within reason. I have them come to Ft. Myers (usually set it up when they have other nearby calls & split the travel). Either way, they are definitely worth talking to about your situation. They know their stuff and can be creative with problem solving (not just parts replacers).

The PO postponed routine maintenance and it got costly. Seals totally gone, shafts pitted, etc. His repair bill was close to 13K! I am a preventive maintenance kind of guy and I had Stabilized do a routine seal job at my last haulout (River Forest Yachting Center - LaBelle location). A tad over 1200.00 total. That was 2 years ago and I plan to have boat pulled, bottom paint & stabilizers serviced by both companies again early next year.

IMO, if you're seeing water weeping in around the shaft(s), then the seals might be gone. I'd be looking to service them sooner than later.

My boat is in Marina Del Rey, CA.
I’m sure the yard here can do it. Just trying to get a sample of the costs that are expected. Sounds like 1 to 2 boat bucks for the seals. Hopefully that’s all they’ll need. Thanks everyone for your input. Very helpful ��

I also agree with a previous post that you need to get folks who know Naiad stabilizers to do the work. I watched the guys do mine and there are definitely special tools involved (especially the tool to "pop" the fins from their shafts. This is certainly a job for specialists.
