Hi
Have just managed to split my old rudder blade top to tail so need a replacement. I need a lifting rudder as we beach launch and was wondering if anyone has a spare blade lying around or can give me advice on where i could lay may hands on one (new or old). The boat we sail is a wooden NSM4.
Cheers

Is it not repairable?

Am going to look into that option, my concern is that it has split right through the bolt hole at the top, it appears to be a CeeVee stock. Am not too handy with wood repairs so am going to try to get advice down my local club re repairs but wanted to price up replacement as well.

As epoxy is stronger than wood, I do not see any problem with a standard epoxy/microfibres repair on the break.

A lot cheaper than a new blade!!
