Lost my Rudder! Replacement?
My 1967 ericson 30 lost the rudder approx 20 miles offshore. I could not retrieve it so lost the support fitting also. We hit nothing and the wind was 18 knots with a 3 to 4 foot swell.
I am going to need help replacing this, say where do i find a replacement and how do I rebuild the hull where the bracket snapped. I have yet to dive down and look at the damage but I am assuming that the post or the bracket failed
the picture shows the rudder just last year when I painted the bottom.
Any help, ideas suppliers, boatwright help in So. Cal would be appreciated
Thanks
Dan L.
