PDQ 36 Rudders

Postby samtheskull66 » Mon May 08, 2017 11:31 am

I need to change the rudder shaft bushings on our PDQ36. I would be grateful for any advice or input. I also need to build a new rudder as we happened to lose one this year in the Bahamas. It had been bent and straightened so there would have been a weakness in the tube. Never a dull moment!

LRC or Classic. The rudders are different.

Are the rudder shaft bushings different?. Only the rudder shape is different. Same shaft dimensions ?

Did you ever determine the correct bushing for the rudder? I have a little play in my starboard rudder and would like to fix it while we are hauled for the summer.

Hi, I have not been able to source the rudder bushings as yet. I will report when I do. I am building new rudders now and would like to renew the bushings before fitting them
