    I replaced the rudder shafts due to corrosion and I am in the process of replacing the rudder table. My question is what is the toe in or toe out of the rudders. I was told the rudders are not parallel to keep tension on steering linkage sort of like a toe in on a car. Any info? Thanks

    I usually set them up that the aft edges were 3/8 to 1/2 inch closer together than the forward edges on boats your sized.
    It just needs a little to keep the rudders from chattering.
