I’ll check when I’m down there tomorrow.
Replacing the packing material - click to read my write-up from when I did this last year.I think that could be part of issue. I noticed a few drops of water catchment area below where transmission / shaft join when I went to check transmission fluid. What’s the fix associated with this?
This would be a GREAT LEARNING FUN trip from Baltimore to Chicago!
Agreed Alan - The big question is would you take it through canal system or go out and up through St Lawrence? We have had a number of power/ sail boats in our marina sold this year and they nearly all going via flatbed.
I wondered about that. Interesting that there are many design changes to these Catalinas, such as this one. I can imagine that water dripping constantly into the engine pan was a real nuisance, and Catalina listened to the feedback of owners.Not on Hull #48...there is no such drain hole.
