That would be awesome. I have some really nice african mahogany on order and a woodworking friend who is excited to do the project.

FWIW - You may be interested to know of the original rudder's construction. It was made of one layer glass cloth over some sort of smooth core but filled with air voids (concrete?). This then had a finish gelcoat layer.

The previous owner had a sloppy paint job on it so I had previously guessed wrong on it's construction. I hated to find out this way - but now I have a rudder cross section for you
