This is what it all looks like when it's correctly installed:

Yes,  Except Shamrock doesn't have the rubber shock absorber.  Never did.

There are a number of full service marinaís in the Solomons area, so your friend should call around for quotes. It used to be that most yards in the area would post their rates on their website, but Iíve noticed many places have taken their work order forms down. Since COVID, the marine service industry in the middle Chesapeake Bay has experienced huge demand, so if you need work done ASAP, the yards are going to charge premium prices - especially if they are busy and they know you wonít be a returning customer. So I suspect 2K is the going rate unfortunately. To find cheaper marina services, probably need to go to Virginia.

And in other news from LA Ladyís stern, looks like Iím outta luck for installing a below decks autopilot. I havenít measured it yet but it looks like thereís not enough clear rudder tube for an Edson tiller arm.

Do some searching, in the back of my alleged mind remember someone installing a below deck autopilot on a MKll.  To get the room he modified the aft water tank.  Looked like a great install.

It looks like there is room below the radial drive.

Thanks for posting. I was at my boat the other day using mine and wondered if you had gotten yours installed.  Sorry to hear it wasnt just a quick swap.  I mush have just been fortunate with where they mounted the Jabsco the day my boat was built.

Alex, As requested, before and after photos.

The old hole pattern lined up like advertised, but the old head was too close to the FWD bulkhead for the new Raritan to fit so had to move it AFT 1"-1.25". That started a domino of changes. Done now and glad I did it.

can't imagine being without a rudder stop.
Jim

Looks like Iím without one at the moment.  :?
Canít imagine the force it must have taken to break it.

The rudder stops on the MKI are two fixed wooden beams glassed in under the cockpit floor. There is a 1/2 inch metal pin with rubber hose over it as a ďbumperĒ that is attached to the radial drive wheel/quadrant. When the rudder is turned to its limit the pin/bumper hits the end of the wooden stop/beam. The only way to adjust it is to add more wood or rubber padding so that the pin hits the wooden stops sooner. I had to do this when I installed my below deck autopilot. I added some teak and rubber to the wood beam to make it hit it stop sooneróto limit rudder to 35 degrees swing side-to-side. It would have been easier if it was like the MKll boats and could be adjustable with a cable and turnbuckle/eyebolt..
