I am trying to replace the helm my Gordon but there are not any logos or part numbers visible that I can see, anyone know what types of helms were used?

I would (try to) contact Tom Gordon at the Skiff Shop. He’s hard to get a hold of, but will (eventually) call you back.

The one I replaced last year on my Waterman was a Uflex. I have an 06 and Hellsbay service installed a new Seastar last year.

I’m pretty sure Tom used uflex. I had mine painted to match the hull. It’s kept the corrosion off it and looks really nice.

@TidewateR @IRLyRiser @manny2376 here are some photos. The reason i ask is I noticed what appears to be hydraulic fluid leaking from the bottom of the helm

If it’s only a small amount I prob wouldn’t worry. From time to time mine will leak a tiny amount.
good to know, I may just try to top it off and see if it continues to leak, it is an 07 so it is on the older side.

Does UFLEX require some sort of proprietary steering fluid like sea star does?
