Just bought a new boat

7 posts in this topic

I am excited I just bought a new boat yesterday. Got a great deal on it. It is a 1959 Glasspar Avalon with a 1969 55 hp engine. Only a few things need to be done with it. All it needs is a new battery and some seals for the lower unit. DOes anybody know how much the seals for the lower unit would be?

No clue on the cost, but congrats on getting a boat. Welcome to FM as well.

Typically you'll need a gasket and seal on the water pumps cover, two(tandem) bearing seals below the water pump. 2(tandem)propshaft seals and a shift rod seal. You'll be replacing the impeller as well. Normally thats around $50 total but once in a while you get an impeller that'll run that much. Not sure if the 1969 55 hp is one of those odd balls.

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

And Frank has you covered as far as the seals... it's somewhat dependent on which one's you're replacing...

Impeller-- Sierra part # 18-3082--approx 18.00

(OMC # 382547)

prop shaft seal sierra # 18-2012--approx 13.00 each

(OMC 310599)

Drive shaft seal sierra # 18-2059--approx 8.00 each

(OMC 321466)

For some reason these seals don't appear to come with the Sierra seal kit # 18-2690--$32.00 Which has all the other gaskets and o-rings. Strange

Welcome aboard

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
