Idasailor sells a lot of rudder hardware and may have what you need.

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.

No luck even with a picture.....all i can do is provide a description...
The rudder rests/pivots upon the keel. The bottom of the keel has a u shape that protrudes outward to catch the rudder foot. This boat has no "rudder shoe" instead it is simply a bronze pin thru bolted in place that the rudder pivots upon. I am looking for the shoe with a pin/sleave/bearing that the rudder would pivot upon.

I am thinking you need to have something made. Doesn't sound too complicated. Gets some measurements and go to a machine shop and get a price. It sounds like simple lathe work. In fact, if you sent me the materials and measurements, I might be able to make it for you. I have a lathe and milling machine.

I sail.
