Re: Frozen rudder shaft Hinterhoeller 28

It's imbedded for sure. I'd just dig it out start with new or home made tube that is longer the top of the post goes through the deck right? So lateral movement is not a big issue.
Even as a fist time user you will do very well with epoxy and glass.. Some people use "kitty hair" which is glass strands in resin hardened with catalyst (not epoxy.) cutless bearing struts are embedded essentially the same way.

Here's a thread by someone that did the same thing your facing.
