  3. Shaft seals, dry bilge?

    I am trying to learn about shaft seals, and adjusting them. I continually have 3-4 inches of water in the engine bilges and there is always a concern of what happens if a bilge pump goes down.

  18. 6-71 turbo in a 50' Aft Cabin MY

    Looking at a 50' Aft Cabin MY. Weight is approximately 47,000 lbs. Is it just me or does this boat seem a little under powered. Would be happier with 8-71s? I am a 1200 rpm cruiser. 8- 9 knots. Would really appreciate any feedback on this situation. Thank you!
