Hey Sailors! It's time for your favorite game show, Sink This Rudder!
It's almost time to show you our rudder problem of the week, but first a word from our sponsors!
OK Sailors, here's this week's rudder. She's a 1993 EXPO Solor Sailor. She's outfitted with an 'inboard' rudder, and only one hole drilled in its trailing edge. This rudder floats!
The owner would like to stay true to the boat's simple design. How would you secure the rudder full over?

Thank you, please pardon the cheese. I'm baffled and begging.
A piece of bronze/brass/fancy metal protecting the bottom and acting as counterweight would be nice, but not seeing purchase as option and not setup for manufacture. I like Hillbilly Engineering but no good ideas yet. Rudder floating in shallows is nice, maybe weight bad idea.
Thank you for any thoughts.
