rudder woes

Hi , I know not much instills fear among sailors as losing the mast, keel or rudder. Before I bought my Ontario 28 the previous owner managed to run aground, when getting towed off, the rudder post bent which he had fixed. Now, one year after, I now notice parallel cracks in the jelcoat of the rudder; what is you recommendation on how to go about assessing the damage and fixing ?

Cheers,

Mike.

Could be wet. I suppose you could put a meter on it. However, it sounds like you are going to need to dig in and see what the framing looks like. Not a good problem to have. I think I would just rebuild it.
