upadte on the rudder removal

Went to the lake , had 12 ft of hose , lead weights, bellows foot pump ( for inflating toys etc) , and a mouth piece from a snorkle , and my girlfriend ( an olympic calibre swimmer and x life guard) who pumped me air.
The practice in the lake was fun , i could submerge to 5 feet and get a good supply of air. I think a piston type pump that pushes air on both strokes would be needed to go below 6 feet.

Then to the boat and got the fairing compound scraped off and located the screws , couldn't get them to budge with an impact driver or large screw driver. Actually broke off the bit of the large screwdriver.
I have ordered a 3/4 inch " drag link socket" that will fit into the screw head better and allow me to use a ratchet or the impact driver.

It is easy to work for 4 minutes at a time with the surface supplied air. I am thinking about driving a 2 by 6 down the edge of the wharf into the bottom so i can put my feet or back on it to give me some leverage.

Once the socket arrives I will have one more go under water , then if necesary, i will prop the boat against a wharf and when the tide goes out get the screws off.

Re: Tartan 30 rudder removal

I have to do the same thing as I was run aground after something struck my rudder this past weekend. There is not much left of the rudder, so rebuilding her is not going to be easy. Has anyone been able to find a measured diagram of the rudder 1973 t30?
