Angry P30 Rudder repair.

I have a 1972 Pearson 30. It was bought last Sept. 2013. When we pulled her out of the water for the first time, I live in Ohio, so she has to come out for the winter. I found that there was a 8 inch in diameter blemish in the rudder that the previous owner kept putting epoxy in for the last number of years. I believe that the rudder needs rebuilt. Does anyone have any information on these rudders, or where I can get the foam core. Any information that I can get would be helpful. D R Marine wants $1900 for a whole new rudder. Not going to happen. Please help.

Foss foam probably has the pattern for the Pearson 10m, and it will be cheaper than D n R.

I don't think P30 rudders have any core, at least the one I tried to cut open appeared to be solid. I drilled holes and cut it with a circular saw and never hit anything but fiberglass.

Try Foss Foam, it may be where D R gets their rudders. $1900 really isn't a bad price, but you may find one a little cheaper. Used rudders come along too, there were over 1000 P30s made.
