P303 / p303
« on: August 30, 2023, 11:29:55 AM »
Is there a zink on the shaft of a P303 1983
When I hauled out there was no room for a zink on the prop shaft. I put one at the end of the shaft, conical shape.
Was thinking I should order a longer prop shaft.
Let me know
Thanks in advance

General Discussion / skegg repair

Good Morning, Just had my p303 hauled out, I hit a Large tree trunk in the beginning of the season. Now I can see the damage on the skegg.
What can I use to add about 1/8 of an inch filler to the part of the skegg that's missing. About 1/8 deep by 6" X 4" long
It looks like epoxy filler not glass. Everything else looks good Skegg done its job.

Good Morning, Does anyone have or had this problem ?
I have a 1983 P303 with a yamar 13hp diesel. When I start it [ Starts easy ] It run great. When I put it in gear the engine shakes a lot, than when I bring the RPM's up it stops. At 1st I through there was something stuck on the prop. When it stops I'm good to go went 14 hours with no problem.
Cutlass bearing was tight. When I checked it before it was put back in the water.
Any ideas of what I should look at.
Thanks for any help
