Emergency steering hole in rodder for rope?
In light of what Jeff mentions, a hole in the trailing edge of the rudder on some boats may be to rig a retrieving line through, rather than a pair of control lines. Gaurre seems to have spread the load sufficiently by wrapping the blade forward/aft and criss-crossing his control lines.
