One more point to all of this is if you are in big waves and big wind, you need to get steerage back on the boat ASAP. If I lost the rudder, for any reason, and could not see a fix quickly. I would move to plan B and get warps out over the stern to get bow pointed to windward or to start running with the wind. You don't have time to screw with things before you get broached or worst.
