When a rudder bearing is bad, can it cause a leak?

Responding your question: No. Those bearings are not intended to seal your rudder tube. But, in event of a really bad bearings, that could lead to a big play and knocks, hurting (sometimes chafing) the fiblerglass tube bedding over years. That could pose a leak.
