I live in Norfolk, VA. My boat is the 41 Classic with a 3/4 length fixed keel. My email address is "email@example.com".
I still have the owners manual for the boat but there are no drawings for the rudder assembly. I believe the problem I am having comes from a bushing or washer at the bottom of the rudder post worn out as it looks like if it had come down into the shoe by maybe 1/8 of an inch.
If you find anything helpful, I would be very happy with it.
Looking forward to hearing from you
