Rudder Post Stuffing Box/Bearing
Edson's Stuffing Boxes combines a rudderpost bearing with an above-the-waterline stuffing box for rudderpost sizes ranging from 1” (2.5 cm) diameter to 4-1⁄2” (11.4 cm). We recommend fiberglassing the stuffing box/bearing to the top of the tubing when the rudderpost is in place. This can be done easily using alternating layers of fiberglass mat and cloth. This makes the post a structural bearing and will help carry rudder loads with minimal friction. Custom sizes are available on request, but allow additional time. All parts are machined to order and therefore may NOT be returned. For specs please visit our eCatalog page.
