S2 9.2 Rudder Question

Does anyone know much about how the S2 9.2's rudder is attached? I curious to know if it were to strike something submerged or be grounded, damaging the rudder, would it be likely to cause it to take on a lot of water quickly.

I know you don't anticipate hitting things or running aground, but it happens and I watched some pretty scary footage of sailboats lost because of hitting something submerged. It got me concerned about breaking a rudder that wasn't protected by the keel and taking on water faster than I could bail it.

Please save the troll responses for someone who isn't sincerely asking a serious question.
