Re: Rudder Mounting and P

Great, thanks for the response - CLC do you have any tips on drilling the hole since its a one shot dont screw it up deal? I was thinking I would level the boat horizontally and vertically, and then use a drill press to punch the hole, then fill with epoxy and let dry and then redrill the hole without moving the boat so it should go in exactly the same place. I imagine if the pin is not perfectly vertical it causes the rudder to flop to one side when its out of the water. Shouldn't be a problem for me with the navigator rudder, but the over the top swinging ones would flop I imagine.
