I took a look at my original rudder and it has the disks and the handle. Not sure what shipping would be. Also not sure what their condition is since they are still mounted to the rudder.I've run into a couple of snags, rudder lock bolt stripped out and i lost half of the lock disk and the handle while in a pretty good blow on my last 5 day shake down and the sea cock on the drains. I can't get the thing to shut off. It seems like a small issue but it is the type thing that gives me nightmares. I also discovered a spot on the starboard cabin top that sags when I step my 200lbs up there so i think i better do some explore holes to see whats up.
I agree on the valve for the drains... I'd be concerned too. If it can't close now, it may not be far from leaking.
