Hi Craig
All these items are specific to the individual boat.
Pretty much any sailmaker can deal with sprayhood, sails and boom cover although you may get a better deal from a specialist cover maker for the sprayhood. I bought a boom cover for my old M33 from E-bay. New but someone who advertised there. I've used Crusader and Sanders for sails in the past but they're both south coast based so probably someone local to you will be better.
For a folding prop you need to go to the manufacturer or agent direct. You will need boat type and engine details. They will then work out what you need. I don't know about a 28 but my old 33 was limited in prop size by the distance between shaft and hull so worth measuring that in advance to avoid a costly mistake.
Regards
Peter

Hi Peter,

The boat has never had a sprayhood fitted before so the boat can be fitted around the spray hood. Plus we are working to a budget and I know how much a new sprayhood, poles & boom cover will be from my own boat.

As for folding props there are plenty around languishing in garages. I would rather take a gamble and sell on again if its wrong than buy new. Again my boat has gori race prop on it. Nothing like that is needed here so if anybody has a folding prop, 1" shaft for Left rotation I will have it

:)

Hi Craig I have a used maxprop for sale, 2 bladed 16Inch diameter, it served on our moody 346 but I understand Maxprops are highly adjustable on pitch, the manual is available on line. 1inch shaft. Open to offers . Engine change drove replacement Steve

I also have an old style bronze stern gland and greaser if anyone needs one. Much safer than modern seals in my humble opinion. They cannot fail catastrophically

While the stuffing box itself is most unlikely to fail catastrophocally, flexible mounting of engines requires the whole stuffing box assembly to be flexibly mounted onto the stern tube by a glorified hose. That hose is just as likely to fail catastrophically as a modern lip seal such as the Volvo Penta design, with the same consequence.

I had my stern gland replaced last year to a dripless system - one of best things i've had done tbh - i do have the old bronze greaser if anyone wants / needs one.

Hi Craig

A 15" diameter prop is about as big as you can have on a M28, as the prop should have 15% of it's diameter clearance to the hull.

The original Volvo 2002/MS2 uses a LH propeller, but almost all more modern engines/gearboxes are RH.

The original shaft was 1" with a 12:1 taper.

My original stuffing box/grease seal was just dreadful ! I tried a Tideseal Marine seal, lasted for only 3 seasons ! I now have a PSS seal which is just great, but with any dripless seal you most likely will have to fit a shorter gearbox coupling to get enough length of exposed shaft in the boat for the seal.

All the best

Colin
