What parts did you find going away/producing the shavings when you opened up the drive at 62 hours?

I dont recall, but I took pictures of them and posted them.

A shaft was galled and a (I think) pinion gear was starting to put out metal you could see on the gear where it was starting to pit.

Gadgets took a look at my parts in the post and I dont think I took them all from teague, but I was lucky I caught it when I did.

I just had teague do the whole thing (upper and lower) and I was back on the water in a few days.

I didnt make the long marathon ocean runs last season and Im in better shape likely because of it.

Found a pict, gear pitting is harder to see than shaft due to bad photo.

The life out of the current drive will dictate a move to an SCX or not.

Default Another great catalina run

Teaching the "little one" how to navigate.

Luau Larrys is always good for a tasty libation and I got a firsthand test of the "sheriff repellant" the visible and actually a pain in the a$$ to get - Coast Guard safety Certification sticker.

Boat ran flawlessly.

Default So how cheap can I do it.....

Had a little passenger and near perfect seas Saturday and made a trip to Two Harbors from Marina Del Rey.

With the peanut on board it was easy t keep my hand out of it and a joy to watch him light up at the very occasional burst of speed when I put his hand on the stick and pushed forward.

We boated about 75 miles starting with a full tank from Del Rey and used around 23 gallons or got a bit above 3 MPG 3.2 to be exact.

Pretty damm impressive and my best mileage run to date- goes to show what you can do if you keep your hand out of it.

I'm pretty impressed with the MPG I'm getting with the 525 too, efficient hull!

Ready to go for the season!

Tweaked the radar angle, upgrading the software on the nav unit.

Getting ready for the storm!

What radar unit do you have? I was just reading about the new 3G and 4G broadband radar.
