Glide Bearings has stepped up to help Wake Garage members with an essential project -- a dripless shaft seal and bearings!  

Up for grabs is a special edition Glide dripless shaft seal system for your boat.  We will do a drawing similar to the previous contest.    Last year the honor when to @Shadetreefab.

Still time to upgrade your boat this year... or make it an off season project.


The Prize...
The Glide “special edition” green GMSS updates your old bronze stuffing/packing box for a smoother, maintenance-free, drip-free operation.    Glide Bearings is now the choice of top boat builders including: MB, NXT, Tige, Axis, Supreme, Correct Craft, Centurion, Malibu, and MasterCraft.  They are awesome!

In for giveaway #3, thanks Glide! 

2007 Centurion Typhoon

It's been a looooooong Winter of upgrades since I bought this last September.  Upgrades include new interior and Aqua Marine Deck platform pad replacement, 1600gph ballast pumps, 1300lb ballast bags in the rear, Sideswipe exhaust conversion to a homemade FAE-style system, Acme 1619 prop, added a stereo battery and the Blue Seas ACR and battery switch, added 3 amps, 2x12" subs and a WS EQ, replacing a bunch of broken stuff like the blower, tower amp, hatch struts and all of the ballast drain pumps.  Oh and of course automated surfgates.  Still to do this Spring is a wetsand and buff.

No current pics but here's what she looked like last Fall:

Bought it sight unseen from a dealer in New York for $15K.  I'll start a thread this week. 

yikes...definitely some salt usage apparent in that one.  sad to see a 2013 in such rough shape, but worth it for only 15k!

Got a 2007 Calabria Pro-V 
planning on redoing the transom coverings and add a walk through portion to the engine cover, put switches for my ballast bags and maybe add some slappers... also, I don’t have Facebook but I will have my wife add. Thanks again

HOLY CRAP!  I have a ridiculous leak in my mid-bilge area and am planning to replace the Dripless shaft seal in my 2014 Axis A24 ASAP.  This is my first boat, got a slip at my campground... and the boat has been taking on 6+ inches of water overnight.  Its on the trailer now just sitting around waiting for parts & DIY labor. 

This giveaway would be a LIFESAVER!  This Axis is a dram boat and I can't WAIT to get back on the lake!  Sophie seconds this comment (my furry skipper).

Also, any vids, recommendations or guidance on this project would be much appreciated.  I am quite handy, but have very little experience with marine engines.  IMG_2886.jpg.2b48f2df6963e8220f0ffba59c46f372.jpg
