Thaks all for your help. As blt2ski advised, it does seem there may be enough room between the hull and the cockpit-to lift the shaft up, (which I will grease-what's the best?). When the shaft is up, the rudder pulls off aft. As for my cutlas bearing, I discovered Gilles in Annapolis for Jeanneau parts. My cutlass bearing arrives from France in a few days! The cost, including shipping-$65 (1/2 of the cost being the later). As to the coupler stories, and checking the shaft-i.e removing it- I have yet to decide, but it seems prudent to do it, when the bearing is new-any thoughts?
