We have had a trickle of water though the hull on the outside of the stern tube since we burnt out a bearing on our journey to the boatyard and created a hole in the old stern tube. We take you through the installation process of the new Stern tube and solve our water leak for good!
The old stern tube must have been the original stern tube first installed onto Nandji when she was built back in 1996. It was made of Stainless steel where factory boats have bronze. We removed the thin old stern tube and replaced it with a thicker walled bronze stern tube. Good to go for another 20 years!!!
