    That is mine concern too, my boat is soon to be launched. Completing mechanical elements together I have noticed that bearings are generally moving quite easy on shaft. I think this could be glued on some sanitary silicone?

    Hello, I thought I had water intrusion through the shaft but when I tested it the bath tub there were no problem. In my case the hull wasn’t water tight so I had to paint it again. There’s shafts in the stl download with slightly larger diameter, you might try if that helps. Silicone paste might also be effective.

    Greetings
