I'd say the metal repair would be pretty easy with getting it welded and even beefed up. is it bronze? The shell of the old can be used and then you could inject new foam if everything is clamped and supported so it can't swell when the foam expands. I think that's how it's done in the Factory.. but with real molds I'm sure. then when all cured completly grind the old glass shell and cover with new cloth and epoxy fill. OR? buy a new one from a rudder mfg
