Putting a 1" or so taper on the leading and trailing edges and leaving them slightly rounded would probably be close enough for the type of sailing you'll be doing. Or perhaps radius the leading edge and put a longer taper in the trailing edge.. either measure will probably get rid of any "flutter" you'd otherwise feel.
Ped's idea of shims/bushings is good, but be aware some nylons and plastics will swell when kept wet. I don't think anodes would be required, just store the rudder dry between trips.
