Get the g10 tube that has the id that is the same as the cutlass bearing
od. Leave enough of the tube exposed beyond the stern post for a pair of
set screws to capture the cutlass bearing. I set the new tube in thickened
West System. You'll need to have a thoroughly clean shaft alley for the
glue bond.
