Restoring a very old H14. Rudder pins clearance to gudgeons and the rudder castings are very sloppy. Is there a source of bushings available that I can put in place?

Your Hobie dealer or Murrays should have these oversized bushings (much better than the original white nylon bushings) which can be installed into the lower rudder castings. The casing holes will need to be enlarged (7/16" dia. I think).

For the pin to the gudgeon, there isn't any bushing available. If you have plastic or aluminum pins, they may have worn down over time and simply replacing them could improve the fit. I would recommend using stainless steel pins unless you're sailing in the surf.
