    Is there any chance that czech1350 who is currently the high bidder on this rudder came from this forum? I am only curious because (0) feedback is always a little concerning.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hello!

    Does it include the piece bolted to the hull?

    Not worth the $250 buy it now price. I would not go over $100 for this.

    It needs some epoxy and clamping to fix the splits, plus the hole with the pin in the rudder is enlongated. The pin needs to be removed the hole filled with epoxy with 103 filler, redrilled and then the pin needs to be glued back in.

    This fellow is selling this rudder for a reason. It is not is great shape, and certainly not worth close to the price of a new one. Chances are you can find a whole boat for that price and have a pile of spar parts. I'd grab it for any price under $50. More than that, I'd only buy it if I needed one in a hurry. I'd prefer to look for a nicer one.

    The bit about aluminum and plastic. I like plastic better.

    I am selling it because I have 2 others and don't need it.

    Just because you wouldn't pay more for it doesn't mean it isn't worth it and that someone
    else would.

    You are welcome to your opinion, but that doesn't make it necessarily right. I was given to understand that the aluminum was less likely to break and would last longer than the plastic, so it is likely a matter of personal preference.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I agree with NightSailor
    it isn't worth 250 he said he wouldn't go over 100, well I wouldn't go over 50 for a used and old ridder, actually I would never buy a broken rudder
