Re: Large Blister on Oday 31 Rudder

Drill hole in bottom of rudder - see how much water runs out. An egg cup or two is OK quarts are not.

Grind off blister [ start from top of vent it first.

Lock tiller or wheel and get someone to try to move the rudder [ really hard ]. while you see and feel for any evidence of internal failure.
