If you have the old style castings, you'll need to fill/re-drill the upper hole in the rudders. Try moving the center of the hole forward and up (about the the 2 o'clock position when looking at the starboard side) about 1/4". The new hole will overlap the old, so use a small diameter bit to drill a pilot hole first.


I have the old style rudder castings ...

what do you fill the hole in with?

My rudder is white. (dull white after weathering all these years)

I used JB Weld with my white lexan rudders. The rudder/tiller hardware will hide the holes so the color is not important.

There also was a good article with pictures by Bill Mattson on "Raking Rudders - Correcting Helm on a Hobie 16" in "On The Wire" May/June 1989 issue.
