Re: How to find a rudder design?
I took a few minutes to browse schooners in Portland, because I am curious like that.
I happened across a 100 ft ferrocement schooner with a wood interior that is missing mast, sails and has a non functioning motor. I hope this isn't the boat you hope to take to California.
In any case. A boat this size would normally undergo dry docking for all items you listed above before embarking on any kind of sea voyage.
Two masts, engine, propeller and a rudder on a 100' ferro. $100k is just the beginning. .....
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
