Re: Cal 39 & Bill Lapworth

I was wondering if you can help me. I was looking at a Cal 39 for sale in Merit Island. The seller does not want to give up any money on the sale. I had the boat surveyed and one of the issues was the rudder wobble. The survey said that it needs a new bushing. The broker says there is a wood block mounted under the emergency tiller access that wore out. is this true, is there a wood block that holds the rudder post or is this guy just trying to do a quick fix to sell the boat. I am an engineer and wood does not seem to good wear surface. if you know of this or if you have any suggestions or where I can get more information it would be appreciated.
Thanks
Lew Trautz
