|the metal bar on the prop is the key|
|Cutless bearing is squeezing out a bit|
Worked on getting the shaft out, but that hasn't happened yet. Even though it doesn't show in the pictures below, I did take the two square bolts off. I had sprayed it with PB Blaster thinking that could help, but nothing so far. I may try getting the bolts off to remove the coupling altogether. Tried one nut/bolt but they didn't want to budge. I may spray those down with PB Blaster as well.
|Work light is a big improvement over a head lamp or cell phone light|
Getting the old water lift muffler out wasn't easy, but then, what is? I ended up using a hacksaw to cut the house on either side of the muffler to get it out. There didn't seem to be much in the can. It had a vinegar smell to it. Maybe it was something from the last time I ran the pink anti-freeze through it last year.
|Pulled on this to get better angle to cut the hose.|
|Not much space in the lazarette, but I can still fit.|
|VERY old metal can style. Going to look for its replacement.|
This is what was used as a riser for the exhaust setup. I've seen suggestions by/for others what say an anti-siphon valve would be very helpful. After cutting into the hose, I was told that it can be very expensive to replace. While the hose doesn't seem to bad, it's also an unknown number of years that it's been there. So, more added to the list to replace for this refit.
|the hose/valve on the right is part of the fresh water system|
|diamond plate? Just thought it was odd since the front end of the tank has a smooth top|
|Taking a short break, laying back in the lazarette with the feet in the quarterberth|
|hmmm something doesn't look right here. Part of fuel tank vent hose.|
