Unhappy 1973 Tartan 30 broken rudder

I was struck offshore by something this weekend that basically shattered my rudder, I am hoping I can find someone who has a measured diagram that I can use to rebuild mine. Also I am considering building a totally new one from wood with glass over, has anyone done this, and if so, is it even a good idea.

Stuck at dock now with cool sailing weather around the corner.

I forgot to mention I will be removing what is left of the rudder while she is floating.

Re: 1973 Tartan 30 broken rudder

Was the skeg damaged? Is the rudder's internal stock/frame damaged? Since Tartan is still in business a reach-out to them might give you some dimensions, scantlings and assistance on how to proceed.

Also try these guys: Home Page | Chesapeake Tartan 30 Association

Wood is probably not the best material to use, glass over foam might be better; also there are custom rudder manufacturers out there, but they won't be cheap.
