Pearson 30 Rudder Repair

I agree with dman. Haul it out and take the oppertunity to do a few things that probably need doing or at least inspected. Trouble always follows so get it all in one haul out.

Right now I just paid last month $6 / ft for haul and block with relaunch. This in the lower Chesapeake. Regional price do vary quite a bit.

I had a shaft alignment problem with a prop replacement. There was a feeling cutlass bearing might be bad and I also needed bottom paint. The haul out proved worthwhile and the cutlass beraing did not need replacement. So as a sum of the parts it was a worthwhile haul out.

I only haul every two years so it was just a bit early but I got it all done. It helps to look at the bigger picture.
