Joseph Bennett made a great video in 2012: Service Your Hobie Rudders:

At the 5:00 minute mark, he shows how to install the rudder bushings (4 per rudder casting).

so what's the consensus then... two a side or four?

is it just cost savings to use two
and the extra couple might help tighten things up further..

or is four simply overkill...

also i'd have to drill trough the point labeled ONE to get to TWO so the extra work installing a few extras wouldn't be much...
any further thoughts on this before i begin?
