Post Water comming up through the rudder post

I have a 1987 Catalina 30. During my recent trip I noticed allot of water coming in from the top of my rudder post. My bilge kept up with the water but during my 3 hour trip home today my bilge was on about 2 1/2 hours of that. It doesn't leak when the boat is just sitting still so it's not a large problem but needs fixed.

This is a project I have never done before and I'm looking for a website that may have detailed instructions on how to repack the rudder to stop this from happening. Or any other Catalina 30 owner that has experience in this.
