SOTO ACEBAL 62' Rudder

Rudder.. again.. on another type of boat with another type of bearing from JEFA bearings.
Some kind of an interesting "bricolage" where the bearing was replaced to some
nylon spacer... no need to say that helm was extremely hard..
Removal of aluminium sleeve

Lamination of GRP casing

New rudder post sleeve.
Adjustment of bearing
Rudder back in... :-)
