Re: Tiller, rudder misalignment on Cal 24 Hunt

I sailed a '78 Cal 25-II, Lapworth design for many years. I believe the Hunt's came out a little later.
These were very rudimentary boats if you ask me.
The rudder design on our Cal was simply a rudder post with 1 bolt that went through the post and connected the tiller head to the post.
I don't know if yours attaches the same way. I did find some photos of the Hunt Cal, but nothing that had a clear shot of the tiller attachment to the rudder, but I think it is something very similar. If so, I don't see how they could be misaligned, it was one thru bolt that held the two pieces together and than the tiller attached to the same fitting.
Are you sure it is misaligned, or perhaps the tiller itself is bent?
