    Straight across..., sorry, no.

    You'll need to compare the transom height and see if adapting the Sunfish gudgeon bracket will work in the height a Scorpion has. If the bracket will fit the transom, the Sunfish rudder should be an option.

    If the change is do-able, follow the Sunfish instructions for upgrading from the old style to the new style rudder to install the bracket on your Scorpion.

    I just measured the gudgeon dimension on my scorpion 4-3/16. The other issue could be the clearance above the bracket. It looks like there is only 5/16 clearance between the top of the bracket and the bottom of the deck trim.
