If you must pull the rudder head off in the water, first c check if theres a clamp or something to keep it from dropping out. Even if there is one out might not take the weight impacting it. You could put a heavy duty hose clamp around the shaft tight against the stuffing box. I keep one on my propeller shaft to keep it from pulling put if the coupling lets go.
