Re: Rudder draining, repair, etc.
I just ordered a new rudder from RudderCraft.com
it improved handaling , its solid material with a lifetime warrenty
1000.oo for shipping , tiller and perfomance model rudder (longer , wider) .
for my catalina 25
im real happy with it ..
I had to get a new one , my rudder had crackes , then on the third time i replaced
a pindle bolt for breaking I figured somethings up and should check it ..
well we were out that weekend sailing down wind on a windy day , I figure the bolt broke again then the ruder just broke apart at the pindle ..
we limped home safe , glad we werent far from home .
so my thought is , have a back up plan if it breaks
my origanal rudder had nothing solid were the bolts go through ..
