Re: Tiller, rudder misalignment on Cal 24 Hunt
If you're worried about the rudder slipping out, make a rope loop of some sort and try to get it around the rudder and tie it securely to a stern cleat to prevent the drop while you remove/loosen the tiller head. You might need a helping hand and a boat hook to snag the blade.. and to push the rope off afterwards..
Yes, excellent advise, I do believe that it will float as I remember ours being Foam Filled. Maybe not the next generation though. Easy enough to put something under it to prevent a ton of headaches if it doesn't.
