    Re: Outdrive Corrosion protection-Part 3

    Looks good... well, as good as AF paint can, anyways! If you haven't already, don't forget to open up your pitot hole.

    Re: Outdrive Corrosion protection-Part 3

    agreed, as much as I love the factory finish, it just wasn't conducive for leaving in the water, probably still not. I'll pull her out more often to see how the barnacles are doing... The feeling I got when hauling her out last year, seeing my O/D covered in marine growth.............. don't want that again.......

    The pitot hole is the speedometer pickup. It's a tiny hole on the leading edge of the outdrive just below the cavitation plate. It can get clogged with debris and cause the speedometer to quit working or in your case maybe the thick anti fouling paint. Just use a small piece of wire to reem it out.

    Re: Outdrive Corrosion protection-Part 3

    The pitot hole is what drives your speedometer - incoming water pressure compresses air inside a tube, which in turn, moves the needle. There is a small hole on the leading edge of the drive, just a few inches above the gear case (torpedo looking thing). Take a small drill bit and, by HAND, stick it in and turn it around. You won't damage anything - it's all metal - and the hole goes in about 2" (give or take). You'll know because the drill bit will stop dead when it hits the end.

    EDIT: Bill beat me...

    If you haven't done so, you really need to remove those props and apply the same finish to the Bearing Carrier under the prop. I posted several issues I had with my bearing carrier when I had my 260DA along with some pictures of the corrosion on the bearing carrier. Here is one of my postings.

    Re: Outdrive Corrosion protection-Part 3

    Damn thats ugly. I'll need to look into it. I ask my mechanic if we need to remove the props for the winter. he specifically said NO.
    Thanks for your input

    Re: Outdrive Corrosion protection-Part 3

    Pulled Mountains to Sea out yesterday.
    It's been 6 weeks since she went in. 37 hours of run time, mostly at 6 knots.

    As you recall, I've prepped (Primicon) and painted the outdrive with INTERLUX PACIFICIA.
    Although the hull has a nice green coat of slime, and a few BARNACLES :( near the waterline, the

    OUTDRIVE LOOKS GREAT !

    Not one barnacle, it looks as it did when I put her in.

    WINNER !!
