not at the moment, but after I get the boat home is a few month , I'll see if any after pictures will help (can't remember if they repainted over the area or not).

The pin is accessed from the side of the rudder shoe. There is a cross bolt that passes thru each side of the rudder shoe and thru a hole in the base of the pin. Sand down each side of the rudder shoe and you will see the head of the bolt. Go from there. Remove the bolt and the pin will lift up as you lift up the rudder. You may have to turn the rudder blade all the way to port or starboard to get it up high enough.

Good luck with it,

David

Windemere I ended up having mine done professionally, but they showed me what they did, and there is a hidden fixture at the bottom of the rudder that holds it in place, and to remove it, fiberglass has to be removed to access it, and then it releases the rudder for removal...when done and rudder replaced, you need to fiberglass over it again. I know I once found pictures of this on a 29' Bristol, and now know that it's the same for the 24' as well. If you've googled this like I have, you should come across the same info...good luck!!!!!!

Bristol 24 Corsair rudder removal

Now facing the same problem because the stuffing box hose is shot and must be replaced.

My question is whether it is necessary to remove the shoe at the bottom of the keep in order to drop out the rudder, or whether there is enough play with the top bearing removed and the stuffing box hose loose to swing the rudder past the shoe.

Anybody here with experience in this?

Windemere judging by the amount of views so far, and no responses, I'd say there are alot of us looking for the same answer

can someone help me out with some instructions or guides on how to remove the rudder on my 1975 B24? I need to replace or fix the prop (next thread), repack the stuffing box and stuff.
thanks!!!
