SUJET : Water leaking into stern compartment

Water leaking into stern compartment 14 Avr 2016 22:31 #642

I have fresh water leaking into the stern compartment (beneath sugar scoop) of my Feeling 1090.

It appears to be coming from the rudder stem well above the water line.

I think it is coming in through the deck fitting for the emergency tiller where the white plastic collar is broken.

Has anyone else experienced this? where can I source replacement parts?

Cheers

Trevor

Hi Trevor,
if I understand you well, I had the same leak from the rudder stock, after a crew lost the plastic protection on top of it. So, I replaced it with a new protection that I made. I will post a picture when I am back to France by late april.
Cheers, Gerard

Hello Trevor,

I had the same problem with the white plastic collar broken and water leaking inside. I made a picture of it for you to better see how it is built : in grey, the deck, black the rubber cover and the oring, in blue the metal parts and yellow the white collar.

You need to replace the white plastic collar and the oring inside. Unfortunately you cannot find a replacement part. You have to make it yourself or have it made. What I did is on a calm day while the boat was in the water, I removed the white collar and brought it to a man who could build a new one during the day. I requested to have the ouside increased by a 1/10th of a milimeter to ensure it would stay in place. I also changed the oring and put everything back in place. No problem since.

Hi Eric,

Thank you for the information and diagram.

I'll set about getting the repair made.

Thanks again,



Fair winds and following seas and long may your big jib draw!

Trevor,
I made a cover with PVC water pipe fittings, as you can see on the pictures.
But Eric's implementation is more pro !
Good luck

Salut Eric,
je vois que tu as refait faire ta bague supérieure de safran en donnant l'original au tourneur.
On est plusieurs à vouloir se faire refaire des bagues. Aurais tu les dimensions ? Sinon, on va mesurer sur le bateau. Par contre, tu es le seul à avoir ce joint torique, ce qui est une bonne idée. On va continuer en ce sens.
Quel est la section du joint torique ?
Merci.
