Hold rudder to vertical centerline of transom, slip gudgeons all the way onto the pintle and mark screw hole position on transom. The rudder stop (angle) will mount to transom centerline approx. 5/8″ above top gudgeon. Use #6 RH screw, do not tighten all the way, it should easily pivot out of the way when the the rudder is installed. This piece is meant to keep the rudder from floating out.
