Hi,
First post on sailnet but a long time reader. I co-own a Ranger 33, Starlight.

Today I took the rudder off to repair it. The problem I have is that I cracked the rudder head (used for emergency tiller and hold the rudder) which I believe is bronze or brass.

Anyone have any ideas how to fix the cap or know who supply's them?

Thanks for the help.

-Rob

It's pretty unlikely you'll find a direct replacement.. unless you can find a boat being parted out. But any machine shop should be able to create something that works for you. It could get expensive, but would be cheaper than casting another one-off.

But checking with a marine consignment store and asking around the local yards could prove successful.

That might be the record for someone coming back with the results and closing the case. Good on you.
