‘The entire process with Vesconite worked fantastically well’
17 Apr 2020

“On the annual maintenance inspection of a 1984 model, Jeanneau Arcadia sailing yacht named Ghaaata, significant play was detected in the rudder, due to wear in the internal structure of its housing. The yacht, which is used for coastal sailing on the Oslo Fjord in Norway was hauled into dry dock to have the rudder and housing stripped out for a replacement. Through extensive research, Vesconite Hilube was selected as the bushing material of choice for the main rudder bushings, this due to its excellent reputation for self-lubrication and ability to maintain shape, under load, while submerged in salt water. “I contacted Vesconite, asking where I could have the bushing manufactured here in Norway. It turned out that Vesconite provides a full machining service from their factory in South Africa, with quick global distribution. The entire process worked fantastically well. Vesconite provided answers almost immediately, were always available and personally informed me of the the progress and tracked the shipment, right up until it arrived in Norway. I have no hesitation to endorse Vesconite.”
