Hi Carl,
Welcome aboard. I can understand how you would miss that Oyster. In the picture you posted, she looks gorgeous. Back in my old married days, I lived aboard and cruised a custom 55-footer and I have to say, while I do sometimes miss that old beauty, I am happy to have a much smaller boat these days. I imagine you feel the same. But man, you must miss the sailing!

"Simo, see my reply to the original post. There are a lot of items in the steering system that can cause heavy steering. Ensure everything is properly adjusted and lubricated before you do any major work on the rudder bearings. Good luck Mike"

"I'm a bit surprised you need to replace the bearings on an 2008. I've not heard of any issues other than early model 43s required a brace be installed at the quadrant. Actually the issue was discovered by Franc who happens to own and run…"

Beneteau 40 2008 replacement rudder bearings

Has anyone replaced the rudder bearings on a beneteau 40 2008/9? If someone has done this job could they please tell me what the part numbers are for both the bronze upper and lower bearing sleeves and also for the nylon thrust washers.
