I have an opportunity to save a beautiful * Ranger 28 from being scrapped. It Came onto some rocks and did ok with one major exception. *The rudder is bent a bit. Enough that it James onto the hull and *can't to all the way. I want to repair or replace to save it. Any suggestions?*

probably you have this figured this out by now. anyway you will have to replace the shaft and go back up to fiberglassing and paint. make sure your shaft journal is not broke loose from the hull.
