I noticed that my shaft log is a bit off center in relation to the prop/shaft/strut by about a quarter inch to the starboard side. Is this by design or poor work done by the previous owner? Doesn't...

I found what I believe to be what I need at Glenwood Marine. They seem to have the most extensive selection of rudder assembly parts, etc. They have a matching port for 1 1/8" shaft, but the log...

If you look up at the original photo, you'll see the raised, offset square upon which the log plate is mounted. It's about a 6" x 6" square of wood that's glassed over. Wood was seriously...

Thanks, Noodle. This has just turned into a big problem. The floorplate beneath the rudder plate is rotted. Not sure how I can fix it since I can't get the tiller arm pinch bolt out (and,...

I went with the edge sealing/seam sealing tape. I think they're about the same thing. Or rather, they achieve the same protective measures.

No doubt!! I will say that it doesn't shimmy and sparkle quite like the original, but it looks REALLY, REALLY good!!
