Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Steering hydraulic line

Eric,

If it needs to be THAT tight, it really needs repacking.  

Going on tightening it really tight risks scoring the shaft, or breaking the plastic gland nut.  (I assume your gland nut is nylon, like mine?)  Scoring is not a really big risk with a slow rotation speed like a rudder... but not one I would take.
