Chord is the distance from the leading to trailing edge of the rudder. Certainly, the bottom of the rudder should be at least 1" above the bottom of the keel to protect the rudder if the boat goes aground. Your bronze pintals and gudgeons should certainly be plenty strong enough. Just make sure to keep a zinc on them to prevent electrolysis.
