Thanks Al, no sitting out over the Clyde fitting tailshafts and props with the wind blowing right up your shugh on a winters day, summer too sometimes. Times move on and for the better too.as an aside .the Ross Turnbull tailshaft bearing system was assembled into the housing and aligned and welded into place as this one will be.
Unforgetable experience fitting a Prop in Winter to a ship on the slip's, even worse than chocking where there was no wind chill factor to cope with. The ex RN Surplus Duffle Coat's were well worth the money when it came to working on this type of job in the good old day's.[=D]
