Rudder Bushings


Rudder Bushings
Rudder Bushings are used with inboard-mounted Rudders to reduce friction where the Rudder Shaft passes through the deck and/or hull. They are commonly produced with a Flanged head.
Rudder Head Bushings fit over the Rudder Shaft under the Rudder Head to reduce wear between the Rudder Head and the Flange Bushing or deck beneath it. They are essentially large precision washers.

Rudder Shoe Bushings are used with Keel or Skeg-mounted Rudders to reduce lateral friction where the bottom of the Rudder Shaft seats in a Rudder Shoe socket or on a Rudder Shoe Pin.

If you require Rudder Bushings not listed here, we can custom make the ones you need, given sufficient time. For a quote on Custom Rudder Bushings please forward a sketch of the Bushing(s) you require with precise measurements and all boat details.
