So where are we now on the rudder?

This is also a test of my signature.

Based on your discussions, it sounded like the construction of a 31's rudder would be similar a 34's which is why I thought to share the info. I concluded that Karma's rudder didn't have signficant rusting of the metal and that the rudder was not waterlogged so elected to fill the tubes with the foam then to patch and fill the rudder.

Denise.. you hit on a problem I've been having. The area around my emergency tiller is wet most of the time. I replaced and very thoroughly sealed the access port, but it still gets wet. I worry about the core around the post. Are you seeing the same thing? Anyone else? What's the fix?

Brian, I've placed Karma's rudder removal photos on my Webshots album @ Karma O'Day 34 Rudder Work pictures from sailing photos on webshots
Figured that I'd post this site as well in case others can't get to the odayowners group on Yahoo. Lemme know if that works for you.

Hello all, I really appreciate all the info that you have listed here. I don't know how I would have ever thought of or received the info. Our project is coming along and are presently redoing the wiring and then it will be time to put everything back in place. I sure wish that I had taken before and during pictures early in the project. The teak is turning out as good as new, we are thrilled and look forward to actually being able to use her. Thanks to all for the info. Still would sure like to have a copy of the owners manual.

Yes, the rudder post under the emergency tiller access is exposed plywood but, if you look from the underside you will realize that the plywood was just some sort of backing for the substantial fiberglass cockpit liner and rudder tube. I think the only way to eliminate the condensation is have some type of vented cover. or some small vents on cockpit liner near the top of the em tiller access. I've not done that yet and still have a new water tight 4" round cover plate. it literally rains condensation down into the rudder post! One day I'll vent it somehow and also saturate the plywood with low visc epoxy. I do not think the loss of that plywood would weaken the tube structure.

For me a digital camera is one of the best tools that I have. The film and cost of developing it has really come down to almost nothing :-)

Karma and I are separated by about 100 miles so the pics allow me to plan better. Before I bought Karma about 4 years ago, I crawled all over her from bow to stern and took well over 100 pictures documenting almost everything, I wish that I had taken more. I find myself constantly referring to them.
