Thanks for the info Gorchew. I wish I would have seen these about 6 weeks ago, at that price I could have used them and built to them. For now I'm beyond that point and would have to backtrack a...

Thanks Mechsmith, I suspected something similar to what you described. Should be no problem.

On the attached pictures you can see what I have so far. The lower section of the rudder is just out...

David, I had to google vacuum impregnate but now I understand the process. Sounds like a good solution if you were set up for it.

Sorry about that, I should actually read my post before posting it. The boards are 3/4 inch thick by 1 foot wide, several feet long. I would laminate two together and then shape it into a foil.

Thanks for the ideas, there's no reason I can't work the "slab" of aluminum into a foil, I think it would not be hard at all. Yes, the idea is that the lower half of the rudder assembly will pivot...

I agree Joe, after seeing yours I drilled out my oval keel hole and did the same, pressed in a sintered bronze bushing. I built my bushing from some raw stock I had so went with the stock 1/2 inch...

Guys, if a quality 300 series stainless steel bolt is used in the keel, there is no way it will shear. A 1/2 8.8 or 10.9 316 stainless bolt is silly strong, you will rip out fiberglass long before...

Joe, I think I have yet to find a price they don't beat. As for epoxy, I think its about $15 LESS than West Marine sells it for. No extra charge for haz-mat or any thing either.
