Bud,

Can you tell me the approximate weight of the WS32 rudder on my hull # 103? I ran a line from the top of the rudder over the main sheet attachment loop to the port winch and cleated it. I then removed the bolts from each gudgeon or pintal that were bolted directly to the rudder and as the last bolt was removed the entire bottom of the rudder swung aft until the bottom was stopped by the ground. I am nervous about handling it further by myself until I know what weight I am dealing with.


Today, I took one set of gudgeons and pintals to the local steel fabricator to get an estimate of the repair or replacement of each. They were badly corroded where the bolts went through. I'll let all know what the estimate is in a day or so.

Bob
