Hello, I have 2 really basic questions that I wasn't able to find among the dozens of topics about rudders...I'm adding pictures of my HC14T so you can see what's wrong.

1) My tillers arms are "factory" bent in one way. I've read several time that the rudders should be oriented on the inside and not toward the outside. From this picture below, I'm wondering if they are mounted the right way ? (I assume that no)

2)The rudders are fixed to the rudder castings by 2 bolts and nuts. The bolt head should be on the outside of the boat and the nuts on the inside ? (actually each rudder have one bolt on the inside, one on the outside, from the pictures I've seen and zoomed in, it "seems" the nuts are always on the inside...)

Thanks for these helpful infos !

They look to be reversed... left to right. The rudder blades should be in line with the hull as the tiller arms angle in towards the center. This looks to be reversed.
