Rudder Support Bracket

I have a 1976 22' Seafarer My bottom rudder support is broken off from the skeg The marinia suggested a weld which they do not do. I heard that this is a common problem with the Seafarer's. I would like to remove the rudder and have a bracket welded on to the collors on the rudder post and bolt that bracket to the skeg. Any other Fixes?

Just an FYI, we call the part you decribe, a "gudgeon". The male part that fits into it and is attached to the rudder is the "pintle".

Fast...the seafarer 22 has a skeg hung rudder with rudder post...not pintles and gudgeons.

Joltenjoe...I think the welding idea is best.

Sounds reasonable to me and you will be able to remove the rudder at a later time, if you need bushings/bearings, etc.........

I am having the rudder pintle welded but I am going to grind the leading edge to a taper to improve the dynamics
