Rudder head broke

Postby Michael » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:20 am

This should be a pic of my broken rudder head. Wondering if anyone knows where I can buy a new (or used) one. Also, was this original to the C22 or did a previous owner add this?

Never heard or seen that happen. Check over at https://ruddercraft.com/
Yes----that is the original factory head

Doesn't look too difficult to machine one from scratch if you have the tools or know someone handy like that. Welding is also an option

The same thing happened to mine. I took it to a welder and had him weld a plate to the outside of it. It works for now.

This happened to my C26 2 years ago. I believe it is exactly the same part.

This is aluminium. I had it welded and didn't have any problem since.
