Does this look normal?

I'm looking at purchasing this 01 Skier and was wondering if the screws or what looks like rivets is normal holding this rudder in place? Any help and or other photos is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Actually I was referring to the shaft guide or support. Thanks

Strut.....

The screws and mounting look fine by me (from the picture).

Prop strut looks like normal installation, though possibly abnormal corrosion. Prop looks a bit dinged up too. Straightened a couple with a vise and a crescent wrench a few times. You can make some serious damage look about that good, but it will often not run right if that's the case. Make sure it doesn't have play in it and do a water test for sure.

six of the eight screws are original on the strut and all four screws on the rudder coupling are not can't recall the last time MC used slotted screws, possible bent strut and shaft not to mention stress crack around the strut
the striations on the prop are from the prop striking the ground under load and at high RPMs
Several stress cracks on the top deck and mid hull.
The boat needs serious repair just from viewing the pics, personally I'd let it go to some other sucker

OP was referring to replacement fasteners. Original fasteners were the large slotted bolts. Are the others possible large hex head? I wouldn't think rivets would be strong enough for this application. That brings the question as to why they were replaced........

The zoom makes all the difference. Wouldn't have noticed in the original view.

I concur; they have been replaced.

On the older boats the long slotted brass screw-head type bolts were factory.

Now that I'm on the home computer and zooming in, is that an attempted repair on the strut and not corrosion? x2 on run away, unless you want a project.
