Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM rudder bonding

I had what I thought was a similar problem. I used a longer fully threaded bolt and all has been fine for years.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] SM rudder bonding



Hey all -


Wondering if anyone can shed some insight on the SM rudder bonding setup. I've seen the diagrams however, if anyone has experienced or repaired what I am about to describe it would be greatly appreciated for future reference.


My starboard anode no longer threads into the hole provided. I assume the threads are completely stripped. Port side is still good and is working properly. My initial thought for an easy fix would be to re-tap a larger size thread. I think currently it is M10x1.25 with a 17mm hex head. Maybe a M12 tap (if possible)? 




Kind Regards,


Bill Maffei
