Grampian 28 Rudder Removal

Does any have a procedure for removing the rudder from a 1976 Grampian 28? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't know about the 28 but the 30 is just a matter of pulling a bolt out of the top of the shaft.

I remove the rudder every winter and store at home.

I remove the tiller and the tiller head from the rudder post, support the bottom of the rudder with either another person holding it, or wood blocks, remove the pin from the top of the rudder shaft, and then drop the entire rudder and post straight down. I take it home and store upside down in the garage 'till spring.
Always wise to remove the rudder for winter storage on the hard. This makes sure no water will make its way into the rudder assembly and freeze.

Wow I have NEVER removed rudder & you make it sound easy

My G30 is in my back yard for a couple years to repair the top deck and I often wondered how difficult it is to remove the rudder, What tools are needed. How about a diagram? You say take out a bolt? where's is at please
