Catalina 42 Rudder Bearings

Does anyone know where I can get hold of replacement rudder bearings for a 1994 Catalina 42 Mk1, Hull no.443?

Asked Catalina - no answer yet
Asked Catalina 42 owners association - no answer yet

Any other ideas?

Trying to avoid the situation where I have the boat on hardstanding while bearings are being fabricated. (hardstanding here is big $$$$$!!!)

Thanks Larry,

It's actually the bearings for the rudder post that I'm looking for, not the cutlass bearing.

But your links to Catalina Direct have thrown up some contact numbers that seem to be a bit more technically focused than the ones I have. I'll give them a try.

Thanks

That would be great if you have a contact there. I'm in Hong Kong and it's all a bit difficult with the time difference etc.

Boat details are in the first post.

Thanks

Ok...hopefuly this is good news. I spoke to Kent with Catalina Yachts in CA and the Rudder Bearings for a 1994 Catalina 42 were made by Edson, Part Number 954, size 2.860. I called Edson and spoke to Ken, email Ken@Edsonintl.com, he noted that they did not have any in stock but that they did have the blanks there and can machine one for you, cost $267 (the same price Kent from Catalina noted).

Kent also provided diagrams and information related to the bearing/installation and the link below will take you to where they are located.

I uploaded the files that Catalina sent me to this portal in the Photos section of this site under "Yacht Maintenance and Boat Building"....messed up and it's out there three times.


Hopes this helps and good luck!
