You notice an excessive amount of water intrusion in the stern area of your inboard vessel, so you have the boat hauled for an out-of-the-water inspection. Lift a rudder on your vessel to determine end play. Rock it port to starboard to determine side play. It will move a little, but excessive movement presages sinking. Not something that anyone of us wants to experience, so it's probably time to repack the rudder seal.
