    Got blown around pretty hard this morning. Nearly knocked down twice before I gave up and called it. Unfortunately damaged the pintle strap. New one ordered-I could fix it, but I have a history with rudder problems and I want it 'perfect', Stripped the screw right out... bolt and thread locks with the new one.

    Cheers

    Whoa! I was looking at my pintles earlier and noticed that there is a backing plate (thin metal strip that fits int he goove on the backside there) for all of the hardware down on that section. Did you have one and it got bent too or what?

    Bent the whole strap plate-the part with the pins that attaches to the rudder assembly. I ordered a new strap plate from Catalina Direct. Two days to my door.
