Rudder heel shoe fitting finally off and on its way to the engineering company to be sorted

The heel fitting finally off after great of cutting and grinding of the joint between the base and the re-movable part of the fitting  

Now it is off the worn out bearing in the heel fitting can be bore out and a new fitting put in the hole and the bottom of the rudder pin can be measured up to ensure it is still in shape

The two studs which the iron fitting had seized on to, making it difficult to remove and also they are tapered as well

The rudder loaded in the works van ready to go to the Engineering company to be sorted over the next week.
