Re: Crealock 37 With A Waterlogged Rudder
This string is very interesting because, when we bought Margalo 15 years ago, moisture testing was only positive in the rudder. Robin, the PS guy at the old plant in California, told us not to worry about it.
Now, 15 years later, Margalo is going through a refit here in Maine and I have wondered what I should do about the rudder. It looks solid and doesn't have any evidence of water leaking out of it, although I am sure that there is some in there.
Has anyone experienced or heard of rudder failure in these yachts? If you were headed out for extended offshore cruising would you replace the rudder?
