Not ann easy job unless you have a genuine replacement to hand .
Is it worn (easier to rebush it) or Corroded badly ?

Beware of this " it will do for this season" . That is what we thought and now our rudder is 90 ft down at the bottom of Loch Lomond. Now we have to have another manufactured.
Best of luck
