Re: wet rudder and winter time comming soon

I think you have a T30, the rudder is supported by a bronze shoe at the bottom and supported by a skeg. Pulling the rudder is more involved than the average 30 ft boat, so unless you have to it would be best to leave it on the boat. As far as I know all T30 rudders have water. This will cause trouble if the metal longitudinal straps welded to the post fail from corosion allowing the rudder to rotate on the post.
