Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi Jonas,

Looks very solid. Can I ask why you added the rod below deck and glassed it into the hull. I know it will be much stronger but are you expecting that much bigger loads? Did you add to...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Well the cutlass bearing 7/8 x 1 3/8 is too small. But the North American sizes available, next one up is too big. The shaft appears to be 21.8mm and the inside diam of the strut is 36.2mm. Where...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Anybody else have a 7/8" prop shaft? Ok so it's not 7/8"... It's obviously metric. Found a cutlass bearing that will hopefully fit in the UK from A.S.A.P Supplies Limited. Hasn't anybody replaced the...

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Thanks Marty,

I'm grasping at straws. I don't even know if the rudder post goes through the cabin so that it could be the source of the leak. I got so tired of the salt water leaking that it I...
