Re: Teak rudder for a Catalina 22...Pros and Cons

paulk...I was thinking the same thing about them being used for such a long time but didn't really know how to go about protecting it. I saw where one guy used a cloth with clear epoxy to keep the wood look.

SloopJohnB.....I read last night that same thing...also in one of my findings the guy simply kept it oiled.

I like the looks of it naturally so varnish or oil may be what I try if I decide to get it. Plus when not in use it will be stored down below.
The price (150) seems fair for other rudders I've found but have been too far to travel. I actually found two in my searches last night but they were closer to a 4 hour drive one way. After fuel costs and the wife stopping somewhere along the way to shop I'd probably be better off getting a new one.

If teak should not be left in the water then some one should tell all the owners of all the teak boats in the world that fact. prime and paint it the same as you would for a teak hull. if left in the water it would be a good idea to use some antifouling paint that is good for your waters.

Re: Teak rudder for a Catalina 22...Pros and Cons

I think I'm gonna keep shopping. I know it would look good but think the kick-up will better suit my needs. I found a guy that's parting out a whole boat and he said he would hold the rudder for me so I think that's the route I'll be taking. I've just got to drive a little, although it is tempting to go take a look at the teak one since the guy text me with a lower price today.
