Catalina 30 Repower
"The original engine was removed by crane, the engine bed was cleaned and epoxy repaired were it was slightly detached from the hull. This is a common problem with the C30. The owner decided to also remove the prop and shaft for inspection, install a new cutlass bearing, rebuild the stuffing box, and replace the stern tube hose and clamps. Of course, this work is much more easily done with the engine removed. It was also decided to replace all old fuel hoses, exhaust hose, clamps, upgrade the engine intake sea-cock to a 3/4" bronze ball valve, [the original was a 1/2" plastic type] and install a bronze raw water strainer."
