Hi There
If you plan to replace the lower bearing you might consider DELRIN.
It is a very good bearing material. Should eliminate any binding or corrosion between different materials. Find a machine shop to make one up for you.

That little bimini came with the boat to me. Not sure what to do with it. I would prefer but not sure I can afford a dodger. Plus I will need something overhead of driving seat. My dermatology appointments are too frequent as is...

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Here is a pic of what she looked like back in about 2003 when still under care of PO. Hopefully I can bring her back to this look. First everything structural to get in water then cleaning sprucing, etc. once in slip with elec and water. My plan is to sail her for a year and then haul for full painting which I plan to do myself back in storage yard. I figure it better to learn to sail and especially dock her with old rather than new paint job.

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

Oh.. is it wood outside too? I have visions of a bright finished (varnished) transom on your boat now!

R? is that transom wood?
Sorry I missed your last question. Yes it doth appear to be wood. Glassed in around sides with what I guess are called tabs? is this significant?

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

You did an excellent job. I'm using the GTO packing on my propeller shaft stuffing box, with an SS shaft. I have no worries about corrosion.

Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

SJ... I have no experience with boatyards on a job like this but I doubt I would get away for less than2k.my costs were about 400 of which 300 was stuffing box which I almost got free from marina owning brother if bronze pricing had not been so high :-) I hear Charleston is expensive. Pricing to step mast and splash it is running about 475. Ouch!
