Modifying rudder - us yacht 25

I have a US Yacht 25 with the shallow keel. The rudder on this boat extends about 8 inches below the keel and is therefore the first thing to hit bottom. In any case the rudder now needs repair and I'm wondering what problems I might cause by reducing it's length. The rudder is about 42 inches deep.
