Ruffer bearings

Just in case any one else has a laguna 30, (and a little late ), here is my fix for the sloppy bearings, which turned out to be a lower and an upper tube sleeve lined with a teflon like liner. The rudder came out easily, and I found that the upper sleeve was worn just where the sleeve is bonded to the cockpit sole,(auxiliary rudder point). I purchased a 12x12inch x 1/32 inch,sheet of teflon etched on one side, and repaired the upper edge of the upper sleeve with a glue supplied. One full season with lots of sailing, and the repair is still good
