Nice video. Dslpwr, how did you do the sterntube and cutlass bearing? Is the tube extra thick in that area, then drilled and tapped for set screws? Do you have a way to remove the bearing without removing the shaft?

The tube is full length about6’, cutlass are in boat ends. They are secured with set screws. Shaft has to be removed to replace them.

Just my opinion but, that is the best looking boat I have ever seen.
Thank you to you and everyone else! it’s taken many years of trial and error to come with a plan on what I wanted. The boat is well thought out for a lobster boat. Plenty on room under deck most people don’t think about getting to everything to work on but that all I think about plus quality costs more but it does make it worth more and less repairs down the road.
