How'd it work out,Zeke?



I don't assume as you've done, and don't believe everyone knows what a propsmith is- thus the post.

So here's the run-down...

I spoke with a few local captains who confirmed that this diving team does perform this regularly - on steel commercial ships as well as fiberglass yachts and that this was a time-proven method. I had my reservations, but charters were booked to go out, so gave it the green light....

The detcord shook the boat, enough to knock down some velcroed panels. REALLY made me uncomfortable. But the props came right off and now the yacht is running fine with new props and no discerable damage from using this method.

We'll haul the boat in a year or so for the bottom paint, so I'll know then if there is any visible impact from this. So verdict right now is a tentative success until proven otherwise...

Hi,

Thanks for posting back with your experiences.

It is good to read the outcome of someone's idea/troubles rather than a lot of suggestions and ideas and then the thread goes dead.

It helps to build the knowledge base here at YF and can often be of use to others who know how to use the search function.

I think I'd be keeping an eye on stuffing boxes and shaft seals for a while.

Hi,

Aren't they a couple of items you would normally be keeping an eye on as a part of normal operation?
