Yesterday at 08:54 AM Rudder slop by ChasB

My rudder has developed give both forward and aft and lateral. The tube does not appear to be weak. I am told that the tube can stretch out and should be replaced. Tartan tells me that rudders can wear out and are not generally repaired. A new rudder is about $4000 plus shipping. Anybody have any experience with this? Thanks. Hull number 114 late 1979.

We have a mysterious oil leak coming from an unknown place on the engine block. Has anyone else experienced this problem? The engine was new in 1984 and has been well maintained. Any clues would be well received! Celebration Hull 250. Don Cairns

Could someone give me the length of the tiller arm from the center of the rudder post to the tip of the tiller end? I don't have the original tiller and I need to modify the length of one I purchased. Thanks.

09/03/15 10:13 AM repower advice by 10-john

My 1979 Farymann K34 runs, but I think it's time to preempt a failure during the season by repowering this winter. What engines have been used, and what guidance does anyone have? Does anyone have recommendations for good boat yards on Lake Superior? Any engines out there looking for a new home?

Oh, and if you will need the Farymann for parts, send me a note before I Ebay it.
