Rudder Removal - R38

Posted: 17 Sep 2012 - By: David & Ruth Clayton
It seems to be the season for rudder problems. Our R38A has developed a rudder wobble - the stock is moving about a little. Looks like bearings. Has anyone got experience of dropping the rudder and replacing - e.g. tips for shifting the shoe, and for getting the old bearing out. Also does anyone know the dimensions for the upper bearing (which the spec describes as a White metal bearing) 39;ll need to order well in advance of hauling (we are in N. Borneo, so local expertise is limited!)
