Gudgeon replacement

Not a CP-22, but my last boat had a transom-hung rudder with worn gudgeons too. One of my crew's father-in-law was a machinist, and he made some bushings out of Delrin. It worked great for as long as I owned the boat. That said, I think replacing the gudgeons is a better choice.

YMMV,

I again spoke with Catalina Direct. Seem that the threaded plates were cut in somewhere along the production. They did not keep track. But if your boats S/N is > 427 you should have the plates.'
