Put water in rudder on purpose? Strange.

I'm curious, how old are these Pearsons that are loosing their rudders? I signed a purchase and sales agreement on a 1976 P-28 today and will be lining up a surveyor next week. The boat is in the water so I didn't get a look below the waterline yet. How concerned should I be?

I live in B.C. where we tend to keep our boats in the water year round (and sail year round ) but in the east where boats are hauled out for the winter I believe there are more reasons for this. Most rudders are built with a stainless frame in foam and glass on the outside. Where the shaft joins the rudder blade or where hardware is attached to the rudder water will eventually get in. Most rudders will eventually develop cracks and however small, they can let water in. This starts the corrosion to the underlying structure of the rudder. After many freeze/thaw cycles damage will increase and corrosion continues. Eventually, after a long time, and many of our boats are over 30 years old, the metal structure is compromised and weakened. When sailing in a breeze there is a lot of sideways force on the rudder and when weakened enough it will break.

It is a fairly friendly and open-minded place, if you're not a a spammer... and by posting what is effectively an advertisment without fully disclosing your relationship, you're effectively a spammer.

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.

I've sent a message to StainlessOutfitter reminding them of the rules re commercial disclosure. For the moment the posts can stand as they don't include web links or contact details.

Thanks for the heads up SD.

Stainless, you should read the rules of course but beyond that, it would be in your best interests to stay on good terms with those who you are hoping will use your services.

If you propose a product on a site like this you are dealing with a bunch of people who will question the veracity of your arguments and if they have any doubts the quality of your products and services.

ps - http://www.sailnet.com/forums/sn_advertise.php (its right up above you under "contact us".)
