Rod, You are missing the washers that should be on either side of one of the gudgeons. Cut some 1-3/8" ID x 2-3/8" OD washers from any kind of plastic material. Make a sawcut across one side to be able to twist the washer to get it over the 1-1/4" OD pintal. This way you can put on the washers underwater without removing a pintal. You can put them on the underside between the gudgeon and the rudder cutout, since the rudder floats up anyway. You could also wait for a haulout, but you would have to remove all three pintal pins to be able to get some washers on.
