replacing seal on the rudder
Hi to all,
I replaced the 3 seal, 4 months ago, with spares from Amel.
I tried to follow all suggestions from Group (Bill,Richard), I didn’t add any paste/grease.
After a little leakage I turned the nut 1/6 . After to Madagascar passage from La Reunion, again little leakage. Again a new 1/6 turn, not to hard.
After to South Africa passage and sailing South, along East South Africa coast, again new leakage. I turned 1/6 more (a bit hard to turn), but now I have some drops also without sailing, tied up to Algoa Yacht Club, Port Elisabeth !
First question: is it possible to replace the seals without hauling out ?
Do you know a good technician support from Port Elisabeth to Cape Town ?
Any suggestions about my mistakes ?
Many thanks in advance
