hi Andrew… 
I have done a few pages on machining my own rudder bearings… my rudder shaft was also worn and how I got around this..
My bearing war NOT roller bearings but a polymer bearing.. the post covers the material I used and what I did.. it turned out to be be a simple DIY job if you either have a lathe or know somebody with a lathe…

Ive been away sailing. So appogies for late reply.

I feel I have to say I completely agree with Taylor [bluenote11] .  I did the long Delrin sleeve to overcome the problem on my 301 Bloto. This was essentially to placate a surveyor, honestly rudder play of 1mm is not a big deal.
The surveyor was completely on board with my longer sleeve bearing and sign off on it. I subsiquently sold the boat and the new owner is happy over the last year.

If you must splash the cash with Jefra, and as you will have to glass in new rudder tube,  my option would be to buy one of their 'racing' rudders with Duplex Stainless Steel rudder stock of smaller diameter than the Aluminium and the thinner NACA aerofoil section. Less drag and Duplex SS great in sea water, strong stuff,  no worries on using copper antifoul, no corrosion!

Perry, I didn’t know you had sold Bloto, or if you had it’s obviously my mind is going.. what have you got now? 
Take care mate.. 👍
