LOL I don't use ziplock bags to protect electronics any more... they're just not reliable. I will either leave it in the cabin, or it goes in a waterproof case.

Small daysailers are a lot of fun, but most of them capsize quite well. This can be a lot of fun during a hot summer day...

I take it that along with re-building the rudder you're planning on fixing the rudder latch.

You don't necessarily need to use the exact same rudder that was stock on the boat, and might be able to get away with a standard NACA foil design for the rudder. I don't know how the rudder connects to the boat, but if it uses standard pintles and gudgeons, it should be fairly feasible to do that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
