Getting back to you a little late, but thanks for all of the input. Zach, I got those pictures and they were a big help. Thanks for taking the time to do that. I got the new gudgeons installed and have been sailing now on four separate occasions in big wind with no problems. There is a little slop that I am going to have to work out with the new one-piece gudgeons, but I definitely feel better about them that the two piece. I'll definitely be taking the screws out occasionally to ensure I never have to do that again. I learned a lot through this repair. Now I am looking forward to making up for lost time.
