Well , before you go dissmanteling anything I would plan on replacement parts for the rudder system . What comes to mind is bushings and or bearings
and whatever else they tell you your going to need .
The other thing is , before you do anything with a rudder is make sure you can support its weight either from the cockpit or below the rudder itself (have to use your imagination on that one) .
One final thought would be " should this be done on the hard ?"
Ive had something similar happen to me on an Islander Bahama 24 , but it wasnt something I fixed before the boat was eventually sold , boy I miss that little boat , had more fun on that pocket cruiser than I have on many its rivals , oh yeah , thats another thread
Best of luck with your project dont forget duct-tape and 5200 are the answer to every technological cunundrum regardless of esthetics
Its hard trying to nap with that bilge pump alarm going off all the time
