Catalina 27 rudder needed!

The Jesus nut backed off of the bolt that holds the rudder post to the tiller head during a storm while the boat moored... Goodbye rudder!

Need a replacement... Preferably used ($700+ for a new fabrication). I like the "Booth" design but I'd rather not spend that much.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? No one in Annapolis or the Eastern Shore has anything...

tl;dr

Find me a used Catalina 27 rudder, please!

Isn't there a cotter pin on the shaft to stop that from happening?

If the boat's still on the mooring--or you know where the mooring is--it might be worth hiring a diver for an hour or two to see if you can find your old rudder, no?

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Unfortunately it was moored off of MCB Quantico in the Potomac River. The currents through there, combined with the fact that it was a huge storm, made it highly unlikely that it remained in the area after its departure from my boat. Then I was transferred to Cali and the boat has been in a slip at Quantico since. I'm back now, and I need to get the boat out of the base marina ASAP...

Thanks for the suggestion though...

I also need a rudder for my Catalina 27. I hit some sort of submerged obstacle and bent the rudder post. Who did you find that would fabricate something for $700? I'm looking at about $1,400 for a new rudder through Catalina Direct. If you get more than 1 response, let me know.
