    Stern gland easy to repack yourself ?

    If you have the volvo type seal Ben, You will have to " burp" the seal when back in water so a little trickle of water comes in, this gets rid of air. As Mike says, you would need to put in grease, I do mine through a plastic drinking straw. MIKE WILLS at cobbs sells the grease.

    Outboard Anode

    It was tested several years back Rob, as was the whole marina . There are " hot spots" around the marina apparently! Best answer I could get, then I moved my boat . Makes you wonder as several members have had problems with props etc

    Cobbs fuel

    Just spoken to Cobbs and problem is still happening........apparently they are waiting for a part for their card reader, which is in the post!! I'm not joking, you just couldn't make this up. I did say about going back to writing it down and ringing us for payment.........can't be done according to the lady as it is all tied up with the computers!! This is crazy .......

    Outboard Anode

    Used to get the same at F17 Brian, it all started about 4 years ago, it seemed to start after EXTRA electrical sockets were added to F pontoon!! That's why I added 2 more onto my rudder to combat the problem.
