Well, we hauled this week (again) and I've been repairing the rudder post. Probably overkill, but ground away the massive volcano of fill and damp fiberglass, the I started with 3 layers of 10 oz cloth (very flexible, hopefully sealed any leaks. Followed that with 3 layers of X-Mat, really heavy strong stuff (3 layers = about 1 hull thickness). Everything was cut in strips and set vertically up the post, then a layer wrapped around. yesterday was 3 more layers, and today I'm going to cover it all with a layer of fill, just to make sure there are no little cracks. The downside is that the stuffing box was frozen solid, so I couldn't adjust it, now it's pretty much glassed in, so I definitely can't adjust it. I should have dropped the rudder and replaced the stuffing tube, but I would have had to cut off the quadrant (corroded on solid to the post) just to remove the rudder post. Will save that little gem for next time. I'll try to get some photos up eventually. Thanks for the input.
