I dont quite follow...I have an emrgency rudder access on my '66 Columbia 40 covered by a bronze plate but after you use this tool to unscrew the plate...you see the rudder post head...different boat but not surer why there would be a piece of wood here...maybe someone more in the know will chime in...
