Hi Bernd,

Attached is a photo of one I cut out of aluminum stock. If it is short enough you can tighten the nut at sea without removing anything.

Hi Bernd;


Amel sells the required wrench, or you can have any machine shop make one for you. Aluminum would work best as it is light and easy to work with. We had one fabricated and also purchased one from Amel. I’m sure you can come up with other tools that will work,  but the nut is fairly soft and you have to be careful how you apply pressure.


Happy Sailing;

I had a very little water near the rudder shaft after some heavy seas. Wanted to tighten the nut, bit its too big for my tools. Any advice or do I need another special tool?
