    IP manual says Wisk (detergent) works. If you brush, do it across the grain so as not to remove the softer material. We're about to use that on our cap rail before finishing.

    Info from the IPY Factory:

    Hi Hayden,

    1) Stuffing box (packing gland) comes from Buck-Algonquin: 410-643-7145
    2) The hose is an extra thick piece of black rubber hose. Should be able to get from BA above.
    3) Shaft diameter is 1”
    4) Cutless bearing is a standard bearing for a 1” shaft.
    5) Shaft length, info would need to come from Kevin at General Propeller: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

    Hope this helps,
    Karsten

    I don't have any boat documentation. I do have a manual for the engine, but it won't address the stuffing box... probably the shaft. I'll check it on Thursday when I'm back at the boat. I've considered droplets but have decided to stay with the stuffing box.

    Right. That is why the engine is grounded as it is directly bolted to the propeller shaft and to the propeller.

    I have asked the factory to answer this 30 seconds after it was posted. I have asked again today for an answer. No reply.

    Yes, maybe you can call the IPY factory and ask them directly for support. I am trying to find out but do not have an answer yet.

    I'm not at my boat but wondering if the factory manual/paperwork that came with the boat when new might have that? Have you called IP? Snead Boat works? Are you looking at installing dripless?

    Stern tube is grounded, but the prop shaft is isolated from the stern tube by the rubber lining (the cutless bearing) -- I think?

    Our IP35 has a grounding wire that is clamped to the stern tube. Then our engine is also wired to the grounding system.

    We rto just treated all our sewer lines with CH by Raritan. We talked to them at the Miami Boat Show and it is reported to clean the hoses of the scale build up. We have no way of knowing but our system is all new last year by the Island Packet Factory and I want to keep it clean.

    Following information from our pump-out/ plumbing specialist, I just purchased C.H. (Cleans Hoses, Tanks and MSD's) from Raritan. They claim it is Safe, NonToxic, and Biodegradeable. It says it is "Formulated specifically to target uric scale and calcium build ups to clean sewage systems from toilet to tank, Cleans Hoses will dissolve clogs." Hopefully it works as well as they claim. It will be a cheap alternative to replacing hoses.

    Bonding system is good, I check every year before launch.

    How is the shaft connected to the bonding system? Transmission coupling? Otherwise, it's isolated, isn't it?

    You can simply take your ports, one at a time, to an auto glass repair shop or any large glass shop--- I did all mine on my 29' for about $35 each,...
