That looks very different to mine. On a wing Keel shallow draft it is cut off virtually parallel with the keel.

 I assume you have a deeper cast Iron fin keel version 301.

I have just clicked! JEFFA were not the original rudder manufacturers. They are offering their own  design (probably better shape) as a spare. 

If you look carefully at the drawing they show the cut-off version for the shallow draft lead wing boats and the longer one for cast fins.The key thing is the shaft is identical.

do you face understeering starting, lets say from force 4? And to make the boat head where you want to, you kind of need to paddle with rudder?

Something sounds very wrong with that

Now that the boat is out of the water, weíve had a chance to have a good look at the rudder. As the rudder is currently suspended, thereís some play in the bearing but not as much as weíd initially feared. However thereís about 8mm of play vertically. If we raise the rudder, then the bearing is snug with no looseness at all. I was surprised to see that the rudder stock is only retained by a clamp on top of the deck, as the deck flexes. 

Current plan is to insert a thicker washer under the clamp in order to lift the rudder. Does this make sense?
