Re: B32 rudder shaft repair

I want to add one thing that I wasn't clear on until last night. The bolt that is oriented athwart ship goes through the rudder pin. I though it was under the pin and the pin simply rested on it. As a result the pin doesn't turn, The rudder revolves around the pin so to speak. The bottom of the pin is threaded. I haven't learned yet what the threads are, but the repair tech thought it looked like it could have been for a set screw perhaps. I'm not sure why that would be needed. There is also no way to put a cathode on any of this. It's all bronze.

We'll see how it holds up.
