Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28
Usta be a tool for pulling rear main seals like a skinny screwdriver iwith a threaded end..like a long shafted wood screw. Mebbe use a 3" drywall screw? or a dental pick...or a walnut meat picker? Tools abound...just ta find the right one!
From my link previous:
These come in various sizes, and even in threaded-end versions for launder rings.. use two at a time helps, but you need to match the tool to the packing size.
