Lowered rudder stock of 47 Grampus

The rudder of Grampus has slipped down about half inch from its site.

Is It advised tò install a two parts washer of the right thickness?

Alternatively, Is there a different solution?

Thanks everybody

Dear Matteo,

the correct job would be to dismantle the rudder and get a (preferably bronze) washer of the right thickness. I am not sure a two parts one would stay in place.

Dismantling the rudder will give you the chance to change the bearings (delrin of course) too.

All best,

Dear Matteo,

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, indeed a two parts washer would probably be too thin. I will discount the rudder next winter and follow your indications.

Thank you very much.

Oops, "dismantle", and not "discount" .
