Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Hydraulic Linear Drive.


Hello Jean-Pierre (Eleuthera)

could you kindly explain me more you coment:

" However, the installation of a hydraulic drive in an early SM enforces a regime of “remove the rudder bellcrank” to verify and tighten the rudder shaft nylon nut because one cannot get the tool under the modified bellcrank to tighten it while at sea.  (Lose all steering if done… think of putting the boat in “irons” before removing the bellcrank.  Hence the “regime" described earlier…."

Thank you in advance,
