Sabb Engine Prop Shaft Greasers; Attn Stan & Jermey

Stan & Jermey:
Where are the two prop shaft greasers located in you boats.  IDUNA's are located in the lazaret.  Because of the tiller location, opening the lazaret requires the removal of the tiller.  How have you greased the prop shaft while underway???

The small one is attached to (part of)the stern tube
just on the inside of the hull and is easily accessed
within the area under the cockpit.

The big, fat greaser (plastic)is mounted on the
bulkhead inside the same locker area and connected to
the sterntube fitting via a small diameter, heavy
walled hose.

Buy the way, access to the area under the cockpit is
through the folding doors next to the companionway
steps seen in <http://www.pbase.com/image/172289 >.

Because the Sabb is under the sink, all of the area
between the aft end of the stbd quarter berth, the
lazerette and the port hull is open…well in there is
the 10 gal. diesel tank, batteries, storage bins, 20
gal. water tank, 40 lb danforth anchor, wet locker and
a couple of tool boxes. I can crawl into the central
open area and access a lot of stuf. I’ve been known to
nap back there when supposedly working on the back of
the electrical panel.

I note that this are is not accessable from the deck
and is always dry so it’s a good place to stow long
term canned food items.

My greaser is in the lazaret as well, fastened to the
transom. At present, my lazaret cover has no hinges
and can be slid forward without removing the tiller.
I have plans to install hinges with spring pins which
permit disassembly.

Jermey:
Are the hinges with spring pins manufactured by Murray?  We thought about using the Murray snap-a-part hinges but I questioned the strength of the hinges.  We have also thought about using hatch hinges with the removable pins.
 
The location of  IDUNA's greasers are on the forward bulkhead of the lazert  I thought about locating the greasers forward of the engine where I could access them via the forward engine compartment door under the companionway steps.  Before I do this, I will need to test a long run of hose to determine if the greasers can pump the grease that far without undo back pressure - life on a boat.
