"Before you do that check all the steering hardware between the wheels and quadrant. There's a lot of hardware in the system that could induce friction causing a heavier feel to the wheel. I have a 2008 43 with well over 10K nautical miles on…"

"I've been wondering, if I should do the same in my B40/2007. The rudder has become heavy (high fricton?) and the problem is not in the steering cylinder. Anyone had similar problem? Simo"

"Hi Michael, at the moment I prefer a Folding Prop due to better performance while sailing and also when "motoring". My gearbox has a ratio in forwarding of 2.36. don't worry... I'm not American....I'm Italian :-) "

"Hi, I have a Kiwi feathering prop on my Beneteau 43, 4JH5E engine. It looks small and blades are a funny shape but it works perfectly. They set the pitch depending on size of engine, will need to know gearbox ratios, and it has full pitch in reverse…"
