Re: Tiller, rudder misalignment on Cal 24 Hunt

I visited the boat. Before the good secure the rudder advice. Fortunately, the rudder stayed put. See two attached pictures. I'm thinking Sailortkj1 was right about the bolt going through the rudder post. So I think the problem is between the rudder post and the rudder. Bent? I don't know how to fix that, unless I elongate the hole the bolt passes through and then tighten down what I believe greg called a collar. Not sure I want to go that route though. I may just need to live with it. Am I missing something?
