Tartan 40 rudder leak,
Author Last Post

Hi all-

Does anyone have a diagram of the T40 rudderpost seal/assembly ? Mine started weeping under way when motoring at 7 knots, but not when docked, presumably from sloshing up. Took me a little while to find the mystery of small amounts of water in my usually dry bilge because there is no leaking while docked/stationary.

It's not a big leakand I'd like to try to do a temporary fix while in the water (Maybe grease?) and fix definitively in offseason.
