The only inconvenience I forsee in your plan is that the ocurrence of corrosion in the friction area might cause the rudder to seize or weaken in a very significant manner.

I would consider using large thin teflon or nylon shims between the ruder blade and casing and would fit both with a couple of sacrificial anodes.

Regards!
