Hey,

If your rudder really weighs 200 lbs it must have A LOT of water in it. Mine weighed 100 MAX, I was easily able to move it into my car, then into the basement and then into the garage for repair. It's real bulky because of the length, but it should not weigh anything close to 200.

If you think removing it was fun, wait until you get to install it!

Oh, did you find the two bearings, top and bottom? Don't forget them when you install the rudder.

When I installed mine I was able to fit it in position, then I looked a line under it and connected the line the jib winches. I used the winches to raise the rudder up into position so the quadrant could be bolted back on.

Good luck,
Barry
