Some solutions that I have come up with
Did you ever try to unscrew the 2 screws that hold the packing nut retainer in place while at sea?
I took my Dremel tool and cut 2 notches in the rudder quadrant with a carbide bit.
If I would have thought of it while I had the new quadrant made from stainless it would have been much nicer.
I got tired of cleaning up the old steel quadrant.
