Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28
Step 1 for me would be mfr a template to where the current hole is so any cutting and replacement will put the rudder right back true to it's current location and angle. A piece of pipe mounted to a thin plywood form would allow you to mark the outline of the plywood form. This jig would allow you to test the new tube alignment. If you make the jig also have a removable sleeve/tube you'll be able to put it into the new tube to represent the rudder shaft when mounting the new tube.
