Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28
I still face removing old stuffing box just above rudder tube. Will likely angle grinder it off. Then I can see Shaft condition and go from there. Not sure if I have lower bearing. Time will tell.
Should go without saying, but...
Be very, very careful as you get close to completing your cut through the broken part -- you really want to avoid nicking your rudder post with the angle grinder (or whatever tool you choose to employ.)
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
