Please, i've two questions and a little bad surprise.
Do you get it and how do you have solved it ?
1°) last week, i've started the engine and no fresh water to the exhaust. Juste a little salt water in the pipes after the filter and falling to the exhaust pipe. So, i dismount the impeller, changed 4 month ago and 100 hours. No problems, no slip between the rubber and the axis. Just this terrific tap in Yanmar engine that never close correctly the entrance of salt water. I'we started again and all was solved !
The gasket of the tap ? Belt ? Do you have experiment it ?
2°) i use to find salt water in the engine compartment around the batteries. I clean it each month and salt comes again. Just 5 or 6 sponges.
No water in the pump box upside the keel.
Any idea ? No leaks at the exhaust elbow changed and bought from the US at 1/3 of the french price, no water to the pipes between the Vetus, no water under the jabsco pump, ....
Any idea ?
Hi all - while changing the gear oil on the sail drive I found that I had water in the system (greyish oil).
Time to change the seals on the shaft unfortunately.
But inspection of the cleaned shaft reveals some grooves which will probably wear out the new seals quickly.
(See attached picture)
In order to mitigate this I’m considering to install a sleeve on the shaft (solution proposed in various boating forums).
Sleeve is available from SKF under the brand name “Speedi-sleeve”.
Does anybody have experience with this in the F36.7 group?
Hi group - I am the happy owner of a 36,7 from 2008 located in Horsens , Denmark and my family are considering if we should swap boat with another 36,7 owner for July 2017 - 2-4 weeks. Anyone here that could be interested ? Regards Klaus Schubert - FB profile is a dummy since I dont use it for anything but this.

After 11 years of very successful racing and unforgettable cruising, the time has come to find a new owner for the most amazing sailboat I ever sailed. Retirement plans will unfortunately not do justice to fully enjoying Southern Cross and doing everything we are planning for the next few years. We have owned and loved her since new and she is probably the best of both worlds (Racing Yacht and Performance Cruiser). She is in outstanding condition with many upgrades and optional extras. Sought after performance shallow draft version that has allowed us to see places of the Chesapeake, ICW, East Coast Inlets, rivers and marinas that never would have been accessible with a deeper draft! She is in outstanding condition and will make any new owner proud in racing or visiting marinas and anchorages. Incredible racing record that includes more first places than all the other positions together, as well as overall PHRF Champion of the Chesapeake Bay Yra
