Rudder issue 27 catalina

I an thinking of buying a C27 in northeast. The rudder has swelled due to water freezing inside rudder.Can this be repaired. the broker said he can repair it using West system material. I am afraid of rudder failure while sailing on Great lakes. What is your experience/opinion? Thanks.

Replacement rudders are available, probably from Catalina Direct but I have seen ads form a place that makes them also. The C27''s would sometimes get a split or crack along leading edge, if yours allowed enough water in to swell, replacement may be called for. Websites for C27 Association and some other places to look at below.
