Thanks for the replies. 1 5/16th looks about right to me when I checked at my local Supercheap tool rack.

Hull and Rig / Stauchen Nuts and Socket Length
« on: July 16, 2017, 11:39:42 PM »
Can anyone tell me the size of the nut on the stauchen bolts that pass thru the deck join. I need to know the socket size and length needed - memory says about 3/4"nut and at least 6" bolt depth.

Thanks, Roger - SV Merrily (yes she is sailing again and currently located in English Harbour Antigua)

Can you please advise when the next GAM is and its probable location in Melbourne FL (not Melbourne Vic Australia).

CSY 44 SV Merrily (currently in English Harbour, Antigua)

Thanks to Soggy Paws and the other replies.
I bit the bullet and purchased a new CourseMaster 950 Autopilot System with reversing pump and linear hyd drive. Total cost in AUD was $3800. Will advise after sea trials in June 2017 on its performance.

Hi, Anyone done a cutlass bearing replacement on a CSY 44?
Q1. Do you need to drop the rudder to get the prop shaft out.
Q2. Any recommendations or ideas welcome.
My CSY 44 named Merrily is on the hardstand at Sammy's Boat Yard in Falmouth Harbour.

Hi, I have just acquired Merrily located in Antigua, my question is what autopilot system is recommended for CSY 44's. Merrily has cable steering in very good condition.
