I think I read another thread on a rudder failure. There was also a story in Sail magazine a few issues back about a rudder failure on Lake Erie where the boat sank when the rudder and post fell off and they couldn't get it towed back to shore in time. Full inspection of the rudder and related parts are now part of my checklist before putting the boat in the water in the Spring.
