the only issue with wooden rudders out on the dry is they warp out if shape when out of water for too long

if you dismount it you are asking for trouble as its common for the pintles to not align well...

since you are out of the water I see no benefit at all in glassing the rudder when the rest of the boat is still wood

you can fix wooden rudders quite easily and fair and epoxy them instead of glass...

just a thought

I had a nice long rudder like that on my old h28

simple to live with did nothing to it even after being on the hard for close to a month once

the rudder did warp and after a week or so back in water it went straight again...and so did the planks stop leaking
