Rudder replacement

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a 1961 Pearson Electra. She is a little rough but nothing a little elbow grease and some expert advice can’t fix. I really need to replace the rudder and I have no idea where to begin… other than the obvious. The rudder is wood. What type of wood should I use? Glues, epoxys... anything. I also want to put a cabin sole in what type of adheasive should I use to place the teak and holly plywood to the existing painted fiberglass?
Thanks,
John

You might try Idasailor. They make a lot of replacement rudders for a lot of boats.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
