Chrcking Rudder

I heard a pounding from under the boat in the area of the rudder.
Hints please for checking movement that should not take place.
I have wheel steering & the quadrant etc looks OK.

Thanks

Simon—

It would help if you said what kind of boat it was, since some boats have known issues with their rudders.

Also, welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That was Neptune demanding libations. Better hurry. He gets a little testy sometimes.

Checking Rudder

Thanks Sailingdog for advice re posting

My boat is a 1977 Ranger 30

Any ideas if there is a Ranger forum with owners of R30 who may have had rudder problems?
