Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

I think I'd be considering looking for an appropriate ID thick-walled fiberglass tube or pipe, remove the original altogether and fiberglass/epoxy the new tube in place with substantial gussets... something like this:

If you can't find the right tube diameter you could make your own as described by SloopJonB previously.. and do the same.

EDIT:... I see SJB and I are on the same page!!!
