‘Shaft vibration eliminated with Vesconite Hilube’
21 June 2018

“After replacing the all-rubber cutlass bearing of my new Jeanneau Sun Fast 35, Tide The Knot a frustrating two times in seven years, I sought an alternative. A fellow sailor told me about his positive experience with Vesconite Hilube as a rudder bearing. Shortly after contacting Leandro Panzini from Vesconite, I had a state-of-the-art polymer bearing installed. The propeller shaft had vibrated severely at 2900 – 3000 rpm, caused by the original cutlass bearing materials wearing prematurely. Jeanneau recommended replacing the cutlass bearing annually—a time-consuming and expensive proposition. Their all-rubber part simply did not have the longevity and reliability I needed. With the Vesconite Hilube bearing, there is no vibration at all, even while running the boat at full rpm. Inspection upon haulage has shown no sign of wear or damage either. The service and product I received from Vesconite was excellent, I could not be happier with the result.”
