Can anyone tell me urgently please! Where (if you can) do you get the new drive gaiter and seals for the outdrive and can anyone tell me what is above the drive unit inside the boat as i am sure something has gone or broken away from the unit on the inside of the hull. There is or what looks like a worm drive with a securing ring and two hex screws to hold it in. Is this where the handle used to fit to raise the unit???

Many thanks

Renovating Sliding Windows
  1. Has anyone succeeded on relining the aluminium channel without removing the frame from the boat and dismantling it?
  2. Have they used Seals Direct flock window channel or were they able to get hold of something similar to the almost rigid original channel liner and insert this in situ?
  3. As there is not a lot of space above and below the glass pane should the insert be placed above and below the pane or just above it or just below it if not room for both?

Do you pack the gaiter on the Z drive with grease around the UV joint?
You do not grease this u/v it is splash fed from gears.

Wonder if anybody has a wiring diagram for a 27ft Nauticus canal cruiser? My boat number is 55 Maggie James, and is moored on the Norfolk Broads. Thank you in anticipation,

Just finished fitting new window seals to all windows on a Nauticus, found the best method is to use a silicon spray and 2 x window fitting spatula's from North Eastern Rubber.99p each ObjectPath=/Shops/62030065/Categories/%22Insert%20Tools%22
The silicon spray is also really effective for fitting the filler strip in a couple of minutes
Can do it everything as a one man job. Hope it assists others in the replacement of window seals
