Yes, the factory is not responsible for the acts of the dealer, trucker, or skipper. You must show the rudder was defective when it left the factory. Without an expert's opinion to the effect you have no valid claim.
Jsaronson is right. I have asked once and you did not replay: Where was the boat delivered? and it was delivered by truck or sailed to the delivery local?
