mitiempo The Durbeck 46 has no strut. It is a full keel design with attached rudder. The prop aperature is in the rudder and not the deadwood.

Gary M You may be able to remove the cutlass bearing without cutting it but you really need a threaded rod press that can be made up. If that does not work then you pass a hack saw blade through the bearing and then connect it back to the hack saw inside out then make a careful cut.

As for the rudder bearing it varies by specific boat so I am no help.

Good luck

sawingknots on the cutlass bearing i usually use a hacksaw blade to cut through the bearing ,being careful not to cut into the strut,this will relieve the tension from the press fit,about the rudder bearing ,i don't have enough knowledge about that to help you

Cutlass Bearing and rudder bearing

Hi All I will soon be sailing a 46 Foot Durbeck. but I need to replace the Cutlass bearing and the bearing at the bottom of the rudder. From what I have heard about the cutlass , you remove the prop and then there is a hole to remove a set screw then use a punch to get the bearing out. On the bottom of the rudder there is a plate with two bolts to hold it on the keel and a cup that the rudder shaft sits in and it has a good bit of play. Any info about this would be greatly appreciated.
