I had my rudder shat fail this weekend on the bay. The shaft failed right at the top of the rudder ( typical failure spot from exposure to the elements). I was able to retrieve the rudder (well Tow Boat US passed it on the way in). The shaft is steel pipe. I need to build or have this one re-built. Does anyone have any sources in the Annapolis area for this kind of work. If anyone has built a rudder assembly please let me know how I can go about doing it. The Islander 37MS is way out of production and Foss wants 2K to 4K to mold a replacement. I am looking for options. Dreamcatcher is dry, I can take all winter if needed to solve this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
