At Tides, providing excellent customer service is our no. 1 priority and we proudly manufacture our Shaft Seals, Rudder Bearings and Sail Track in Deerfield Beach, Florida. Our products improve vessel performance and reliability, solve unique system issues, reduce the need for scheduled maintenance and provide worry-free, long-term boating enjoyment.

The Tides Marine RPB Type F unit is designed to be installed in rudder tubes which have been laminated or welded into a vessels hull.
The unit consists of a one-piece UHMW housing with a nitrile lip seal. It eliminates metal-to-metal contact and the associated problems of abrasion and electrolytic corrosion. It is 100% watertight and eliminates chatter and vibration, resulting in a quieter, smoother operation.
