Hi Mary,

You really should be able to remove and re-insert the rudder by hand.
I would try going over the shaft with a piece of fine emery cloth to make sure it is free of corrosion and pitting, and if it still is difficult I would try putting water-proof grease on the shaft. 
Best of luck,

Steve Pedersen

Subject: [SPAM][Santana 22] re-insertion of rudder

Before winter I removed my rudder, which had a hairline crack on its bottom surface, and brought it indoors away from our sub-zero temps so that it could dry out.  It took quite a bit of pounding with a mallet to get the shaft and rudder all the way out.  Now, as I contemplate re-inserting it after the repair, I am at a loss as to where I will pound on it to get it back up all the way where it belongs.  Pounding from the bottom on the new repair does not seem like an option. Any ideas out there?
