Pearson P-40

Hi My name is Robbert I'm a Machinist of 30 years and I'm fixing to sail away in to the big blue ocean. So I went and bought a 1980 Pearson P-40. Now I did have another post but I log in with my Facebook and I no longer use that email. I have been looking on the old interweb for information on the MKII rudder for the P-40 so she doesn't have so much weather helm when she going down wind. It's not that bad but I will be single handing this boat for the first little while when I leave. Now back to the MKII rudder, I have a Picture of this rudder but that all I have. Now I'm hoping to find someone out here may know a little something about this! Thank you folks

Contact Foss Foam ( There is a good chance they made the original rudders for Pearson. They can certainly make a new one for you.
