G26 Rudder Replacement

Hey everyone.
I was wondering if anyone out there had the dimensions for a rudder design. I am replacing the entire rudder on my G26, shaft included. I went around to marinas looking for salvage rudders but the best I could come up with was from a Hunter 27 for $700. I figured I might as well build a new one.
If anyone knows the dimensions, has them drawn out, or could point me to a website that has one.
I know the Grampian owners site has a small section on rudders with a picture of dimensions, but according to the article the dimensions were drawn from a G30.
Thanks in advance
Fair Winds,
Jackie

I'll be at the marina in the next day or two and can send you pics with measurements off my G26

Re: G26 Rudder Replacement

That would be fantastic. Thank you for offering that!
Are you making any repairs in the marina?

I am presently having a new SS bow fitting made. I still have the original aluminum plate, so replicating that is easy enough. easier than replacing a rudder from thin air, in any case.

Re: G26 Rudder Replacement

I am repainting the topsides this year and the deck as well next month most likely.
I ran the halyards to the cockpit and boom vang as well. Did a few things to make it single handed friendly.
dodger was re stitched and repaired last year, making a new Bimini this year with full camper top and screens, re did the galley and built a nav station so to speak on the port side.
davits solar power still need to be re installed.
I am also switching the lifeline bases to the toe rail clips which should give me an additional 4 inches of width along the side for walking, and a few more items , mast lights, interior upgrades and the basics

Re: G26 Rudder Replacement

I have just pulled the rudder at the first haul-out of my 1972 Grampian 26 - it appears the rudder shaft has taken a real beating over the years. The lower bushing contact area is concentrically worn 1 mm or so and the top, just below the retention pin bore, is deeply grooved from wear with a loss of about 15% of the shaft cross section. Current plans are to bolster the worn surfaces with dense epoxy and get through the summer. I have traced and measured the rudder assembly should I ever need to fashion a replacement sans rudder number one, but if anyone has additional thoughts on this situation, I would appreciate your perspectives. Thanks in advance, Tom
