Skip,

You collect the whacks no doubt. But I will say this - and you've
heard it more than once - YOU are living the sailor's dream, and
everyone else is only talking a good story....

The problem is that the post itself is corroded/pitted. That not only lets
water through, but wears on the packing.

There ARE people who would send off for a sheet of stainless feeler
stock, and cut a rectangle to wrap the rudder post with the smallest
possible weeper gap in the seal section, and having filled the sealing
area pits with loaded epoxy, would glue the wrapper round it.

Of course, *I* would never do any jury-rig like that!

On my old Cal-34 I used to wrap the rudder post with a layer or two of
heavy duty mylar sheet, goop it all up with water pump grease and
reinstall. It was usually good for a couple of years.
