Rudder replacement

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a 1961 Pearson Electra. She is a little rough but nothing a little elbow grease and some expert advice can’t fix. I really need to replace the rudder and I have no idea where to begin… other than the obvious. The rudder is wood. What type of wood should I use? Glues, epoxys... anything. I also want to put a cabin sole in what type of adheasive should I use to place the teak and holly plywood to the existing painted fiberglass?
