  • What is this and how best to fix up

    Im in the process of cleaning up my first ever MC boat. Its a 2013 X25 with the 6.2. Only recently took her home and I'm enthusiastically going over everything and learning whats what. I took off a cover and noted some rather heavy rust on parts of the transmission. Im mechanically challanged so could someone either tell me what I'm looking at or point me to a site where i can read up on it. Worried about the really rusty bits

    Also the rust. How should i clean it up and stop further corrosion?

            Yep, salt water pretty much 100% of the time but its the ss so corrosion is limited to a few places where the previous owner hasnt looked after it. I just want to clean it up or replace the bad parts. Just need to know what it might involve and what parts these are. One looks like engine or transmission mounts?

              Trans mounts and the one with the 4 bolts is the prop shaft coupler. Spray them down with WD-40. You'll at some point need to do a prop shaft alignment and those will need to move, more then likely.

                Whats the prop shaft coupler do?
                And are the transmission mounts difficult (expensive) to replace?

                  water gets in the bilge and attacks those parts that are obviously not protected ... you will need to wash them regularly and blast them with some type of protectant ... WD40 will help but not for the long run

                      I wouldn't worry about replacing the trans mounts unless they get to the point you can't move them when doing an alignment or they fail to hold their position after an alignment.

                      The prop shaft coupler connects the prop shaft to the trans mission.



                      On one end is the prop and on the other is the coupler. The 4 bolts connect it to the rear of the transmission part of the coupler.

                        Yeah, i want to fix it up as best i can to stop the rot and then be vigilant with cleaning and protecting these low bilge areas. The boat history shows two bilge pump replacements under warranty so maybe (obviously?) it got some salt water in there at some stage.

                        Any tips or advice much appreciated for fixing up and preventing further carnage.

                          The coupler looks pretty pitted. You could remove it and the trans coupler and have them media blasted and then painted.

                          These may or may not be the mounts for your boat but it gives you an idea of the cost.

                          You'd have to do an alignment if you change them out.

                          That tag on the top of your trans should have the model number on it.

                            Im not up to fixing anything like this myself. Just interested in necessity (should it be done and should it be done asap) and a rough idea of reasonable hrs and rough parts cost to do it. Do i need to sell the wife (low$$) or the daughter (high $$) or both! Knowing them both, as i do.....life could be worse

                              Personally, I wouldn't do anything but keep them sprayed down with WD40.

                              Are you still boating in salt?
