Columbia 9.6 Chester
Can someone send any info or ideally a photo of the upper rudder bearing used on the 1976 9.6. Looks like someone had done a repair job and not sure if its whats supposed to be there. Looks like a stanchion base bolted to deck with three 10/32 machine screws. Thanks in advance, Colin...

Welcome to the forum!!

Can you supply photo of your rudder bearing? Do you know the rudder manufacturer? Are you getting movement in the rudder post, bearing showing signs of wear or are you having touble steering? In th meantime might contact Rudder Craft Rudder Repair Worksheet | Rudder Craft for verification the upper bearing is fit-for-service for your boat rudder.
