Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28
Wow lots of good input here. You all are making me think this one through. I am thinking to give it a few more days of Kroil, heat, and gentle muscle. If that does not work I am thinking split the tube, cut out the stuffing box, drop and clean up shaft, order the right box/bearing (probably from Edson) and put it all back together with some big hose clamps to hold tube and then glass over the whole thing. Thanks all.
