Islander 28 - Atomic 4 - Cutlass bearing
How much play if any is OK for a cutlass bearing? My old 1978 I28 has a "bit" of play now that it is out of the water for winter and was wondering about what is acceptable. I saw from other threads that the shaft, rudder and prop have to be removed to replace the bearing. Anyone completed it themselves or is this best left to a shop?
Are all cutless bearing materials the same or is there a variety of materials used? Any advice is appreciated.
