REPLACEMENT OF RUDDER BEARINGS/BUSHES

Hello

My Sabre 27 Mark 1 has a rudder that wobbles above 5 knots

I suspect tired bearings of the rudder need to be replaced

Does anyone know somebody that could do this job for me?

My boat is at Newhaven, East Sussex

Many thanks

Re: Gibb winches maintenance

Tried to remove the winch covers today but no luck. They are really hard to remove. I must be doing something wrong. Do you know of any other site with more instructions/photos on how to clean the Gibb winches? Many thanks
