There's something going on that you need to address. There should be no play in the rudder and you shouldn't be able to move it by hand the way you're describing. Not an inch. The J's have had several problems with rudder tubes and that whole assembly. The boats are built in Portsmouth, RI, so you should be able to get good advice on the point. I would call the factory and ask about both your symptoms and who you can call in your area.
