Hi h, thanks for the reply.

Not on the site for quite awhile.  I see others in the old group are not on much either.

I gotta get the boat out soon.  I have been teaching art a lot, and busy on  Facebook.  I think everyone went to Facebook.

So are you at the new floating docks?

Hi H,

Thanks for your message last night I wasn't awake that late.  I bought a boat around Thanksgiving time and am learning to sail on that boat.  I took a few lessons from my friend, but I have crew that are also teaching me on my own boat.  I just have to get my heat exchanger back on after a cleaning so I can go sailing again.

Hey h, haven't spoken to you for awhile...what repairs have you done>/\?  I finally got the stuffing box changed out to a dripless, and had the bottom painted.  Hope to take her out as weather cools a bit.  Really hot weather here in USA.

"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"
