Rudder repair Edel 22

My "to do" list gets longer I think. Discovered this opening on the leading edge of the rudder where the post goes into it. It turns smoothly, doesn't have any lateral movement.\
What do I do to fill the crack?
thanks

Re: Rudder repair Edel 22

I'd be concerned with water intrusion with a split that long. The short term fix would involve grinding out the crack, fill with something like West System Epoxy and 403 filler. You might want to try that first and sail it for awhile to see if the crack opens up again. That would confirm that there is internal separation and a rudder rebuild is in order.

Epoxyworks has a pretty good description of the options.

Good luck - I'm feeling your pain as the to do list gets longer and the summer gets shorter!
