‘Vesconite controls 13 tons of yacht through the toughest ocean conditions’
02 May 2018

“I investigated many ways to bush the main rudder shaft on my 38′ steel sailboat Bryana, and decided to move from traditional brass to a single, large Vesconite bearing. This bearing controls 13 tons of yacht through the toughest ocean conditions and due its dimensional stability, high load strength and reliability, Vesconite was the perfect choice for the project. I installed the bearing myself with a homemade puller. Our family competed in the 2,000 nautical miles Governor’s Cup, Simon’s Town, South Africa to St. Helena, winning the Ambrose Family Trophy. The Vesconite bush on Bryana’s rudder is still 100%. I sold the boat in 2015, and since transfer she has added over 25000 nautical miles to her log.”
