    depending on the space the jefa locking ring might be a good option https://www.jefa.com/rudder.htm

    code 0 furler for a jib?

    Spoke to my guy at Harken last week to see if any larger sizes were in the works, was told that they were not. I would expect the bearings for code 0 type furlers and structural furlers would be a bit different. Too bad the underdeck Harken one won't work. The centerline sprit takes that option away

    Harken makes this: https://www.harken.com/productdetail.aspx?id=47139&taxid=535 as a line drive alternative for smaller boats. Not sure it is big enough for a FarEast 23

    agree this would be a good upgrade but on a boat of this vintage it is likely a multiple boat unit expenditure.

    agree that the rudder should have a smaller gap. Drop the rudder, sand the growth/crap off the post just above the blade, check the bearings (likely either bronze sleeves or plastic) and reinstall. When reinstalling add a collar between the deck and rudder head to get the spacing you want. May already be a collar there and whatever fixing screws are in it have not held.

    Maybe you view this as fake news that doesn't fit your theory but here you go: https://www.seahorsemagazine.com/24-content/august-2013/134-leading-edge

    open 60 keels are set with the pivot angled up towards the bow. Over the last 6 years this angle has continued to increase. The keel fin is vertical and can see the angle in the pic. The leading edge is to the right

    This is from the float of the old Groupama but I think shows what the 60s now allow. The upper bearing can move allowing up to 5 degrees of foil angle change
