Re: wet rudder and winter time comming soon

Apparently it is pretty common to have water in the rudder. I was told to drill two holes in the bottom and then in the spring commissioning, seal in two lag bolts with 4200 (I think). No more drilling holes, just remove bolts and let them drain over winter. It's an experiment for me. Seemed to work last year so I'll see what happens this year.
