Re: Dinghy Capsize

Yeah, losing the rudder box is a real @#$% and might explain the cost (is this the case?). If it's just the tiller itself, someone handy in the toolshed could easily whip up one for far less than $300.

On our dinghy, we use a keyring threaded through pintle to stop the rudderbox from slipping off in a capsize. Saw someone lose a new rudder by not doing something similar. Not sure how the ODay's rudder is setup though, so YMMV.
