E-line Manual Version 2 Stern tube Here it is the same thinking both with or without cone on the tube. Stern tube support The support shall be placed so that it gets as far back as possible, normally just before the cone starts. If there is enough space we recommend to fix the stern tube even on the inside, for example with a small bulkhead. Stern tube angle The angle should be as little as possible as vibrations get more the more the angle is. ≤15˚ To know exact where to drill the hole in the boat bottom is often a bit tricky. If you are not sure these following steps might help you: 1....

Whichever method you choose, it is important that the bearing’s water and air ducts are vertical as shown in the above photos. Locking bearing using cup 1. Place the bearing into position.
