Rudder Shoe Question...

Doing my first hull that uses a rudder shoe. It's a vintage 6M hull.

Question, how big and how many screws are needed to hold something like this?

I can see where a couple of 2-56 might do the trick as I don't see where there's a lot of stress imparted to the shoe. But OTOH I'd hate to see this thing let go. As we all know, it would do so at the worse possible time. So maybe a pair of 4-40 screws?

Thanks all!

I see "two on a J boat" and start to reply with a "two what?". Then I see the #6 at the end. Really need to do something about these glasses.

OK, two #6 screws on a J. Think I'll go with the 4-40 then. Just to be safe. Thanks

I have two #4 X 1/2" bronze screws holding the rudder shoe on my Newport 12.
