Re: How often do I need to replace my cutlass bearing?

Most cutlass bearings are compressed rubber and any play would indicate some wear. Some, like mine are machined hard plastic and a certain amount of play is acceptable. Mine for a 1.5 in shaft is .090 ". If the boat is out I would seriously consider replacment if even slightly indicated.
