Ok, the shaft tubes are on. VERY preliminary results show a reduction of 4 gal per hour at 1850, a reduction of 4-5% load and a gain of about 1 kt. Top end went from 2320 to 2345. Once I get full numbers I will post. Getting ready to take the boat on a trip so it will be a couple of weeks. Here is what was done. First, remove old bearings, then shafts. Then new bearing were installed. Full size bearing were put half in and half out of both struts, and another bearing was cut in half to fill in the rest of the strut area.
