    I have some corrosion on the rudder post on my NT32. Does anyone have experience with replacing the post/rudder assembly?  So far my mechanic is drawing a blank.

    Thanks in advance

    Check out sentoa.org, there is info there on rudder post maintenance and might have some on this issue. Also try the trawlerforum.com.

    If I remember correctly, I have seen an article where the corroded post was cut off and a new post was welded on.

    Good luck,

    I have two solutions having the same assumed issue of pitting at the seal.

    while on the dry pull the rudder and put a piece of 1/2 starboard in the cup welded to the shoe that holds the bottom of the rudder. This raises the pitting above the seal. I did this on a 37 worked great!

    there is a guy in Sedro Woolly that can repair the upper shaft rather than replace it. I can try to come up with a name and number if you still need it. He repaired one for me on a 32

    email me if you need more info profelectric@yahoo.com
