Didn't Svend Ever Tell You....

... to tie off your rudder so it doesn't move back and forth, back and forth all day, all night, all the next day, all the next night.... He sure told me one day after he watched me put the boat away. All that movement wears out the pintles and gudgeons, makes them loose and in need of replacement sooner than necessary. He'll gladly make the part for you or order them from Denmark and make you pay fullest price.
Not like I'm trying to throw these folkboat owners under the bus or anything, but gudgeons don't grow on trees, don't ya know?
