During the storms in December my swing rudder floated off into the Irish sea never to be seen again.
Because Selkie is on a drying mooring I need a vertical lifting rudder. Does anyone have an idea where I can obtain one.
Many Thanks

Hi Andy,

Did you manage to find a new Rudder for Selkie? I made one for my last boat by laminating three pieces of marine ply together. Used a router jig I made of the profile to rough out the shape. (Goggle rudder info)Then lots of sanding and finally sheathing in glass matt. This worked very well and saved vast sums of money!!
