there is nothing apart from the rudder, which is not connected to anything

if you can put a pick of the radio gear and speed controllers you got that will help greatly and if any speed controllers are in the cars put them on too :-))

which is the best way to mount a rudder servo? from the side or in front or behind, which is the most effective?

rudder servo position can be down to a lot of things. is it single or twin rudder for example. But for the most time its "how much room? determines the servo position.
 a single rudder, its easier to mount the servo in front of and for "safety", attach a link on boides of the servo horn, so it both "pushes " and "pulls" to even the servo loading.


sometimes due to space limits, you have to mount the ruddr further away from the actual rudder post, so its either a longer servo rod, or use a cable inside a nylon tube.

Well, now we can actually see the confines of your boat, it puts a different light on the subject somewhat.
personally i would prefver to "ditch" the bobs board and retrofit an electronic "esc", this saving you weight, a second servo and space.

Or

if you are reluctant to replace the esc, then mount the rudder servo as close as possoble, but without interrupting the bobs board operation, as close to teh bobs board you can. then the servo rod can run down the one side, direct to the rudder post, then it leaves the other side of the psace free to mount the second servo for the bobs board arm

Well, simply mount the rudder servo forward of the rudder post, behind the esc [thats not shown on the picture], preferebly as central as poss to even the balance of the boat,.

or mount the rudder servo alongside the esc [if room allows] to again even up boat balance.

the msc is removed, the new esc is not fitted yet as i wanted advice as to where to fit the steering servo. then i would fit the esc to balance it out. sorry but no recent pics with the msc removed

From the position of the sticky tape and the length of the rods, the rudder servo was intended to fit on the right hand side near the stern (looking forward), the speed control servo on the other side.  The only tricky bit is tracking up the servo arms and tiller and speed control linkages.  Although ESCs in scale boats offer better control and greater efficiency at low speeds, and better matching to a wide range of motors, an MSC is actually more efficient in a boat that spends most of its time going flat out.
