Good point...no, there isn't. The only way to do that is undo the grub screw, drop the rudder out and grease, then reassemble. I'll come up with something....

Hi,


Best to sort it out now as it would be very tricky when the yacht is built.


Been there...done that!

Good thinking, Mr Rickles sir...the rudder support is hollow, so the easy way would be to drill into it, add a short length of brass tube with a length of (capped) silicone tube attached to it, and drip warmed grease through the tube.

How long is your piece of string Rich?
If you think the cord supplied is ok  then use it,
If it is synthetic and has not been subject to
UV light it should be ok.
If not, the offer of dyneema is still there.
Just measure what was supplied and I will send
it plus a bit extra.
PM me your address and length {-) and I'll drop
it in the mail.

I haven't got round to measuring the thread lengths yet, Ned...haven't even unpacked the rigging thread yet.


Been cutting out hatches and making some clear covers out of old cd cases.

Rich I have never heard of a Yacht that has a greasing point on the rudder...mine was last greased up 4 yrs ago and it still doesn't leak,so top tip don't create a rod for your back or even if it ain't broke don't try and fix it and reinvent the wheel

Worse case, you can pull the whole rudder out, re-grease and reassemble - you can get to both ends.

True, Martin...it only takes a minute to undo a couple of grub screws, drop the rudder out, grease and reassemble.
