rudder pin, deck harware

How does one prevent the rubber from falling out during a capsize? What is it usually secured to? Also the deck hardware ruch as rachet blocks etc, are they usually secured with machine screws and nuts? I was thinking of using oak blocks under the deck and then screwing the hardware into those, would that be a bad idea? I have spent the last month painting FS 173, it looks good if you squint or dont go too close :(

The rudder pin cannot come out as long as the tiller is in place

The rudder pin cannot come out as long as the tiller is in place. The tiller blocks it from working its way up. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FS5074
