working on a 2010 boat. A loud squeak started coming from what I think is the rudder last time we had the boat out. I am thinking it is the rudder bearings. Started very suddenly. Had a diver check and there is nothing caught between the rudder and the hull. Has anyone experienced a similar problem? are there both upper & lower bearings? what type of bearings and are they readily available? could it be something in the steering gear?
Thanks for any info in advance.
I have a 2006 36.7 live on the west coast of Canada and I must install a diesel heater. Problem is what type and where, space is limited to run ducts from lazerett up to V birth, especially under stern bulk head by the wheel.
The Volvo MD 2030 recently seized up and failed in my 2003 year model. (hull #76) Has anyone re powered or re placed their engine? If so, with what make and model. The 2030 is no longer in production so I need a new transmission and sail drive as well. Nice...
