This mounting is recommended when there is a need for intermediate bearing between the bracket and the coupling. It is also used as a conventional sterntube, but in this case it is necessary to ensure that it does not exceed too much of the stern to avoid a harmful cantilever.
This system includes an epoxy tube to be resined and a cutless bearing used as rear bearing. Available in two standard lengths, the customer can adjust the length of the tube at its convenience. It is possible to provide different lengths tubes upon request.
Depending on the application, a water inlet, usually connected to the engine cooling system can be set up on the tube close to the seal.
