O'day 23 Rudder constuction

I just bought an 1980 O'Day 23 and the rudder has a been damaged below water line. Does anyone know how O'day built these rudders? What the core material is ect.?

Thanks

What kind of 23 is it?

Is it a open daysailer or a cabin sailer?

I think it is a foam core. The person who would know best is Rudy at D&R Marine in Assonet, Mass. The phone # there is 508 644-3001. Rudy used to work for Oday, and has the molds for some of the Oday boats and for many of the parts. He sells replacement rudders and all of the hardware:

I have bought a few things from Rudy for my '79 Oday 23; he is a very knowledgeable guy about all things Oday. Even if you don't want to buy a replacement rudder from him, he can give you some advice about how to go about making your rudder like it was from the factory.

I've never seen an open O'Day 23.

Let's see, a new sailboat for hours of fun and tranquility or my wife's new kitchen, ponder, ponder, ponder, what the hell I've got a grill on the boat!!!

You can also purchase a rudder from IdaSailor, which makes replacements for a large number 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.
