Re: need rudder part for 1951 Beetle Boat Gull
I shot some photos of the rudder and hardware and then decided I'd edit photos I took a few years ago of the Gull. I don't believe I have yet mastered uploading any photos to (wherever the should go). I can try uploading them for this message, but I am an new/infrequent poster, so that may not yet be allowed.
I just realized that I cannot yet post links, so I won't. You might have results if you type something like Beetle Gull rudder into a search engine. I've put the photos on a photo site (can I give name or is that a link?). I guess you could just complete "Yellow Shafted ------" to get the place.
I've not gotten to fix mine up. Well, to sail, it will need a mast and boom. I've tried spars from other boats, but the opening is rather narrow. Can anyone tell me the dimensions of the mast and boom? I'd guess it would want to be about 18' tall. What are those of you sailing your Gulls using for spars? Sail?
PS My photos are sized to large for posting here. I'll try to resize when I can
