She canna' take it Captain

By mickrick
Owing to the fact that the previous incumbents backed into an iceberg, the port rudder was twisted 15 degrees on the rudder stock when we got it into dry-dock. So, we had to grind the stock, and put in a stepped bush to get a tight taper that would take 600 bar, to jack the rudder on and off. The blue dye is to show the contact between the bush and the stock, so they've a bit more work to do - you need 85% contact. Peter, our Chief Engineer checks the fit.
