Re: Dislodging Edson pedestal bolts
My decision was an easy one, I am in the process or rebuilding or replacing almost everything on my Offshore 33. Last weekend I was spinning the helm to see if the rudder turned freely, it was kinda stiff then it got real easy. Later on I while cleaning and prepping the engine compartment for paint, I noticed the entire Edson sheave assembly had corroded and broken into various assorted broken bits.
Now I have learned they make this assembly with different offsets to line up with the rudder, mine was a rusted mess. And don't cut the cable/chain assembly, they are freaking expensive.
I am thinking of changing the name of the boat to 'breaksalot'
Experience teaches us things we would rather not know.
