1973 O’Day 22 rudder dimensions and construction
I am considering making a rudder for my O’day 22. I lost mine prior to pulling my boat for the season. I am currently out of work and have the time. I could also save on the $850 replacement cost. This is the solid rudder. Not the kick-up type.
Does any one have a lead to the dimensions? Any one close enough to me willing to let me stop by and take measurements?
Any ideas on construction? I am considering an aluminum tube frame with plywood/pvc fins for the profile and a foam filler. Then cover w/thin sheeting and fiberglass.
IYHO, is this worth my time? Am I asking for trouble?
