Rudder Bushing Replacement

Has anyone here replaced the rudder bushings on a P-30? Rudder has too much play in it, looking to repair soon. Any advice or tips would be appreciated.

Re: Rudder Bushing Replacement

I believe the delrin bushings are the way to go.

But I think the problem is that some P30s have an aluminum rudder post which causes the bushing to wear out fast. But not all P30s have this issue.

Theres a good FB and google group that may have some better answers for you.

Good luck.

Re: Rudder Bushing Replacement

Completed the rudder bushing replacements. I have a wheel helm, so toughest part was removing and replacing steering assembly below deck. Not much space to work in down there. Had to get permission to dig a hole under the rudder so it could be removed while on boat stands. Boat handles much better now, especially in following seas. This could be accomplished single handed, but is much easier with another set of hands.
