Rudder repair

I've got an 82 MKIII with a noisy rudder - groans when I turn the wheel, esp. when there's more resistance eg. in a stiff breeze. Seems to be coming from the rudder shaft, not the steering gear itself. Questions:

Anyone had a similar problem and managed to fix it?

Any tips on dropping the rudder in the water? (Don't really want to haul her if I can avoid it.)

Thanks,

-Dave
