Rudder Bearing Win

New bushings went on today and the rudder is rock solid, virtually no movement, practically a perfect fit. Huge thanks to my buddy Tom for working through that problem, lending advice, acquiring the parts and addressing my concerns.

Still lots of work to wrap up but that's a big one out of the way.

  1. Great news on the rudder bearing! You're ahead of me there, as mine did need to be fabricated.

    Keep an eye out for Paul Heiney on Wild Song. He's a Half Crown Club member (OSTAR 2005) and as of Sunday was 500 miles from Horta.
