Hi Roger.
You don't say what type of seamaster you are fitting the seal to? I have a 925S fitted with a deep sea seal (mane craft) that has been on the boat since 1994. The only times it has given trouble are when I have forgotten to check it after relaunching and first running the engine after doing work on it. I am normally in the habit of checking it before, and immediately after the boat goes back into the water and the engine has been run for a bit.
The manufacturers say it should last five years without problems. However I think this is based on use on a powerboat, and is only to keep them in the clear. I spoke to the suppliers at the boat show a few years ago and they said that if it is checked regularly it could last for many years more. It is still showing no signs of wearing out after twelve seasons use.
The seal fitted to my boat has the additional water feed that is supplied from the engine. We have this because the boat is on a drying berth and it saves us having to 'purge; the seal each time the boat has been dried out.
Cheers
Tom Wilson
