I had only 20 hours on the first and a little over 100 hours on the second before they failed.
I am still and will remain disgusted at the reaction from PYI and Seaview concerning the problem I had with these seals. I suspect it had something to do with the manner in which the seals are distributed. I think they ship the various components in bulk to the supplier leaving it up to them to assemble and ship the components when ordered.
This is a pretty irresponsible way of doing business, in my humble opinion, as it leaves lots of opportunities for mistakes by staff who are unfamiliar with the requirements or disinterested.
If your seals works and holds up, enjoy it but as mentioned when mine failed it failed big time and I was fortunate not to have lose my yacht while tied to the quay - this is not how things are supposed to work.
