"I battled for two years with stiff rudder movement. I then tried Vesconite. Vesconite is a self-lubricating polymer that never swells and can be machined to size and couriered to anywhere in the world. I had it machined to 0.25mm smaller than the original size by Vesconite Bearings on the inside and outside diameter. The rudder can now be steered with two fingers, what a difference! The cost of two bearings and two bottom washers is less than the price from Bavaria. I received really good service."
