I had the upper rudder tube on my Pearson 30 replaced with a stainless steel tube. No joke. We were sitting there overthinking the heck out of how we were going to re-glass it to the cockpit sole (may be different on the 31-2) until he decided to customize a new, heavy-duty stainless steel tube bolted through the cockpit sole. That thing is now a tank, stronger and took much less time to make rather than re-fashioning a new tube. And, the bushings fit perfectly in it.
