Dropping rudder - Grampian 28
Well my wife and I finaly bought a boat, a 1975 Grampian 28. We want to get it ready for winter here in Ontario. It was pulled out of the water a few days ago by the previous owner, and the rudder is still dripping water from a crack along the bottom edge. Obviously, it is waterlogged!
Tomorrow I'd like to take it off. I could work on it through the winter so it doesn't freeze up again and get damaged more than it is.
So how exactly does one drop a rudder hung on a skeg?
BTW, this rudder like some other Grampian 28 rudders has been modified. It is deeper and wider than original. I suspect the section added on is the culprit.
Thanks for any help!
