4583RE: [campernicholson] Deep Sea Seal
- Feb 2, 2009
When I bought our Nic 35 almost 10 years ago she had a Deep Sea Seal gland and I had a problem with leaks during the first year . I replaced it with a Halyard one which is no longer available but has given us trouble free service since then. The Halyard one is a seal running in oil which to me seemed a better solution than that of the Deep Sea unit. The Deep Sea unit as well as leaking quite badly on one occasion always worried me in that if something happened to make it leak between the two bearings surfaces there is really nothing to stop a major problem.
I hope this comment may be helpful.
