Question Bent Rudder post

Hey all,

happy Hallows' Eve.... Day...

with a bent rudder post, replacement or straightening ? Looks like stainless, about 2.5 inches diameter (possibly hollow?), and I'm not sure of the best method to fix; it's bent about 5-10 degrees- noticeable, however sails well still but I would like her fixed.
am not interested in cheapest, but the best way to repair...and that which will not leave me rudderless in high seas.

Thanks for feedback.

M.
