That skegbar in the pics is 5/8 X 3" stainless bar, it is held to the keel by 3-5/8" carriage bolts with the nuts inside also through a 1' long stainless backing bar. The piece at the end is bronze and contains a 2" slice of cutlass bearing to accept the rudder shaft. It is held to the skegbar by 3- 3/8" carriage bolts. To drop the rudder turn it crosswise, remove the cutlass piece by turning it crosswise and down she goes.

I forgot to mention, in addition to rubber mounting the rudder shaft in a piece of cutlass bearing, a disk of rubber at the bottom of the piece of cutlass stops another annoyng rattle. Or, better yet, just leave it open on the bottom so it won't trap sand..
