I did a lot over the weekend, finally getting warmer here and no rain.

Updated the fuel delivery on the 351, water seperator fuel filter, new fuel line that snakes in a different area away from the heat, detailed the inside the engine cover, started it up, and it sounded so good, and cleaned and waxed the entire boat.

I put it in gear to check the transmission link and man the prop shaft really was squeaky loud. Is this normal out of water?

Going to wipe down interior, check oil, and pull fishing line off the prop now! Just got done with 100 hr service, new impeller/pump, and misc maintenance.

Now it's time to rice it out with some leds and ordering a full Rockford Fosgate system with deep cycle batteries this week!

Yes it is normal to be squeaky loud since there is no water on packing to lubricate. Just dont run to long in gear out of water dont want to damage the packing seal.

You really should not put it in gear while on land. If it was really loud you might want to check and see if the prop shaft is rubbing on the big brass nut.
