The problem with leaving the sail on the mast is that there are still a lot of loads in play, the battens are under huge compression loads and the mast is permanently bent, so you run the risk of generating a permanent prebend in your rig and damaging your sail at the same time, my BL mast bent at the sleeve for exactly this reason.

Check the rules, I think nothing bigger than a 10 mm bolt is allowed.

You are lucky your cement is sold in 80 lb bags, here it is 50 kg!

Stops the blade moving around in the stock, for best results tighten the bolt so it is very hard to lift the rudder blade and sail with it as a fixed rudder, makes a big difference in breezy downwind conditions.
