Has anyone had experience of Deans prop shafts, the 'sealed' type?

The one that I was loking at was coded 8018.

Hi Andy, the Deans prop shafts are made by Raboesch in Holland, they are superb quality with a roller bearing at the motor end

With the Raboesch prop shafts, does one still have to put oil (grease) in them?

Hi Andy, depends which type you have.
The 300 series just have bronze and brass bushes as bearings.
These will need lubricating! The data sheet (see attached) says ensure components are well greased!
The 301 series have bronze and Delrin self lubricating bearings and the data sheet (see attached) says lubrication is unnecessary!
All info and data downloads are here

I'm reading the chat about stuffing boxes & shafts lots of guys in the club I'm in drill a hole into the stuffing box & solder a small tube over the hole to add oil or grease into the box . I goofed when I built my Sea Commander as I had no stuffing box but I had a shaft so I just used a brass tube for the shaft & lubricated the shaft with Sil-Glyde Lubricating compound a Silicone based grease I also use rudder O-Rings to help stop water getting into model through stuffing box. Kind of Mickey Mouse but it works .Except on first run out of water it does squeal a little but in the water it's fine.

I didn't want to faff about with lubrication with it often being hit and miss so have bought a Raboesch from Cornwall Boats. I've gone for the maintenance free with a ball-race at the motor end.

As said lovely quality.
