Hereby the official statement of JEFA:

The little plastic ring prevent the rudder from flooding up it keep the distance between the rudder and the hull. If you remove the plastic ring the rudder might make some scratches in the hull.

I would not remove it. J

At the end of last season our H315 felt slightly different at the helm. Not heavy but different. After lifting the boat out of the water for the winter, I noticed this ring was broken, and the rudder made some scratches in the hull. I knew there was a logical link between the teared rudder ring and the scratches, but could not find an explanation. Thank you guys for explaining that the rudder floats and thus needs a spacer, "Simple comme bonjour", as the French say, :-)

We both have 31's, although you have the wheel & I the tiller, I have a split ring under the top bearing. In your situation I cannot help thinking that I might purchase a split ring & place it under the top bearing. You will not be able to fit a delrin washer in place but I do not think that is needed. ( especially if you apply some grease)That would save you removing the entire rudder to fit the piece of plastic pipe which will probably break again anyway.
If you did want to fit the delrin washer between the top bearing & the split metal ring you might only have to drop the rudder a few inches to get it on which is a lot easier than all the work needed for total removal of the rudder to fit the plastic tube
