Recommended Posts

does anyone know the name of the seal that you have to replace when you take out the rutter or can i get away with not changing it ?

If you have a leak between the rudder shaft & the rudder box (the part that is bolted into the bottom of the boat) the seal may need to be replaced. But, first, has the rudder box been greased a part of normal maintenance? Should be two grease fittings to do so. If your rudder is mfg. by Marine Hardware (look on the bottom of the rudder box plate from under the boat, name should be stamped in plate) skidim.com has seal kit available. $46.85 less 10% discount. Look under "steering" on their site. They can more than likely give you info on doing the job. That is part of what they sell, information! Sometimes they might not be the lowest but great source of info.
