    Hi all. I have a new ally rudder stock with an old but in good nick 19mm blade. There Is a good deal .of play in the combination. Does anyone have a suitable fix, or will I be digging out my box of thick rubber washers ?.

    Fill the bolt hole if a new one is needed and cover the sides with Formica within the stock area. About 1mm each side will help.

    An old CD works quite well too if you have no formica. You only need to use one (unless the stock is much wider than the rudder), and it doesn’t really matter that the blade is then fractionally off-centre.
