I looked again and as it shows in the manual and you all are stating the grease port should be right there but I do not see it. I think that they may not have put one on my boat but I do not even feel a threaded hole to put a zirk into. Where is your grease port? is it up high on the rudder shaft, toward the front or back? I feel stupid here and am pretty mechanically inclined but don't see it.

My '05 X-star does not have a zerk fitting, but every time I change props I have to remove the rudder and it gets some grease then too.

It's not that hard to remove the rudder every 50-100 hours if you don't have a grease fitting on it. Gotta keep it greased.

BTW, my rudder always had some play in it fore and aft. A new rudder port is the only way to make it tighter I believe.

Thanks njskier,

I thought I was going crazy. I will remove the rudder and grease it.
