    Clean up the “studding box” while inside where it sits and box with acetone. Then sparingly only where the box meets the top of the post put a small bead of either 5200 or really thickened epoxy.


    Again don’t put on too much adhesive

    If worried that you might get rudder bonded to post. remove the 3 bolts and any flax from the box. roll some wax paper around the shaft and slide it down so it spans the repair and prevents the shaft from sticking to your “glue”.
