Here is the email response that I got from the fellow who builds new S16s. The cost of a new rudder is close to $700. I will build a new rudder but I'm not in any hurry. Maybe you could borrow one for when your dad is there.
Quote "The complete assembly can get expensive.....Here are prices from last year.
Rudder head $125
pintals (2) $160
Machined rudder $225
Tiller extension $60-90
Options: Can you hire a diver to locate the rudder assembly for you?
I may try and get a set of rudder drawings on the S16 web site for those that want to fabricate their own. FYI….I use Ronstand on the tiller extension and a good stick of oak for the tillers. Everything else is custom made including the Pintals. The rudder material is marine grade wood and the Tiller is T6066T6 aluminum material Ľ” .
Might be cheaper buying a complete boat....some are on sale at S16.org for as little as $1,000, for this you get the boat, sails, trailer, rudder assembly, and mast." End Quote
