and closer up still....
God knows what's been growing on it but what's coming off looks to be close to a 1mm in depth. Hope it's not corrosion!

Shaft is also like new. Notice corrosion on P-bracket. Cranchi to replace under warranty fingers crossed

Starboard shaft still to clean, was covered in barnacles

Topsides all polished as well, looks almost brand new. Antifouling tomorrow and she’ll be back in for the weekend.

Oh dear stb prop looks like my port one did and that was after only 3 months in at hythe marina, turned out to be a bad connection from the engine to the strern gland, suggest you get it checked for full continuity from anode to shaft, rudder etc.

Yes its all being checked out for leakage. Corrosion is nearly right though in parts. At least its a warranty job.
