And yet, you'll sit here and discuss it. Sometimes at length and sometimes even defending those who, like yourself won't do anything. Might I suggest that you are already half way out the door of...

I'm betting corrosion build up could be at play here too. Clean the insides of the coupler and drive dog. A cotton swab and some Flitz metal polish should manage it in short order.. And is the fit...

I would think too that if there was some way to determine the size of the original shaft that one of the boat vendors could supply it without need to mention what boat. Maybe insert drill bits into...

The impact of the actual shape of the rudder would be another interesting study, for a later day. My PT will have scale rudders which are nothing like your wedge. The trick is gong to be making...

What strikes me funny Frank is the number of people, AMA members who on the one hand cry the need for insurance. "Must Have" "Required" etc!

Just wondering if you've ever calculated the torque needed for a given rudder? These numbers simply seem quite high to me for what is being driven. I know water is thicker than air so for a given...
