    Default e-rudder / transom-hung rudder

    The Wildcat's new owner doesn't want the offshore rudder I made for the boat. Since he's sailing on a lake in Texas, he'll just use the One Design lifting rudder. That means that the current rudder is available. I made this thing really strong. The construction process is documented on the forum, but it's solid core douglas fir strips with a layer of triaxial glass in epoxy over the whole thing. There's also a strip of linear carbon down each side. It's about the size of J-30/J-29 rudder. It would make a great emergency rudder for a 28-35 foot boat and would probably steer something larger under reduced sail.

    It has gudgeons bolted on it but if you wanted to make a cassette system, you can just unbolt the gudgeons, pound some dowels in the holes, seal 'em with epoxy and you're good to go. It is, admittedly a bit on the heavy side, but it's bluidy strong.
