Anyone know the diameter of the pintle bushing? I have a call in to Tartan but no luck yet. Sailboat show this week ... bad timing on my part.

Rudder post ID measures 2.5 inches, so I'm guessing the bushing should be about 2.25, but I hate to guess.

Thanks in advance

1/4 inch play sounds like a lot. Sorry just launch our boat today. We had the rudder out last week. Checking for play before launching. At bottom of rudder maybe 1/8" of play, so at the pintle half of that. My guess a 1/16" or a little less.

Thanks for weighing in. I suppose I should have the bushing made as close to inside diameter of rudder post as possible. Only concern would be if its too close it might bind. Thanks again, and hopefully Tartan will get back to me with their specs.

When you get a reply, do you mind posting an update here? I'm interested as well.

Thanks!
