TOPIC: Replacing Rudder Packing Gland Flax

Replacing Rudder Packing Gland Flax 6 months 3 weeks ago #2656

We had a leaky rudder post as you can see from the previous posts. We tightened the brass triangular fitting and it still leaked. It turned out to be leaking up between the Fiberglas sleeve and the brass fitting. I had to have the rudder pulled on the hard and have the fiberglass repaired .

We had the same problem on Baleia. It was slightly leaking when there was pressure on the rudder post, nothing sitting still. I changed the packing and that is it. No longer problems since three years.

Problem has been getting the lock nut to move. I finally madeup a 2.5 inch wrench with a short throw and was able the free the locknut. Now to remove the rest of the stuff so that i can replace the packing.
