What

Aries Rudder


John

Hi All- what do y'all do to hold up the rudder in the up position on an older Aries- I have it tied up right now to the shaft right above the rudder but it seems like there might be a more elegant solution- pictures would be appreciated. Thanks!

I don't think there is much else you can do. I have a velcro band that goes around the rudder and the shaft. Keeps it nice and snug and don't have to worry about knots. Sorry, no pics.

John,

Bungy?

My Monitor has a hole in the lower, after edge of the rudder. I have a line on the frame with a small carabiner I clip through the hole to hold it up. You could probably do something similar around the shaft and back to itself.

Cheers!
Aaron N.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
