I just bought a SQUALL, badly restored by some sea scouts. The rudder shape and mounting has been changed, and I would like to restore the boat if possible.
Can anyone send me jpgs of the rudder, with close-ups of the hardware, and maybe dimensions and material?
The centerboard will be my next project.

Believe me, the boat has been savaged.

Thanks

I can snap some photos and post them here later this week.

If you need a center board and hardware, let me know. I also may sell the SS thingie on the stern for the rudder if needed but not sure as it looks nice.

PROGRESS REPORT
There is a centerboard available that I'm going to buy. And a kind soul has emailed me a 57 page pdf file containing sales material, and a lot of engineering drawings.
I'll likely be able to use my old centerboard to make an (almost) full size rudder blade.
If anyone out there has any original rudder parts - rudder head casting, tiller, tiller extension - that they would like to or can be cajoled to sell I would like to chat with you.

(My wife tells me that I've just found a hole in the water to dump money into. She's so logical.)

Well, I suppose.............................

Hi Arnold:
Any luck with a rudder and rudderhead casting? I just lost mine 2 weeks ago and must replace. If you find a good set of plans please let me know.

Thanks
Terry

Glassamps,

Here are some pictures that might help you. Let me know if you need more. Also, I can trace the actual rudder and send you a template if that will help.

The total height of the rudder blade is 27" it is about 10-1/8 wide by 1/8" thick. The bottom of the rudder has a taper from the front edge to the rear edge of about 1-1/2" The rear edge taper begins about 11" from the bottom.

By the way, I have a rudder from a Walker Bay sailing kit that might work.
