Re: Shaft to flange connection...

Thank you for all the input! By now we already learned a few lessons:
The shaft can't be pulled past the seal without hitting the rudder (A good thing)
The shaft flange came off (also a good thing)...

Re: Shaft to flange connection...

I assume (very well aware that assumption is the mother of all mess-ups) that the replacement bolt put in 2 weeks ago was weaker than the original. I know the replacement was simple galvanised...
