    I have to replace my propshaft and I have never dropped the rudder before. Does anyone have experience doing so? I want to just get it over with and not tinker around... any info helps.... Is it just the 4 bolts and the very top near the aux tiller?

    I had to loosen the quadrant bolts to release the rudder post. I also had to dig a hole in the ground so the rudder post would clear the hole in hull when I lowered the rudder. YMMV
