I'm bargain hunting to replace the missing rudder assembly on an 81 sunfish. I have the tiller, blade, and mounting bracket, but no head/cheek plate or hardware.
If you've got a spare cheek assembly, carriage bolt, springs — or even a complete rudder, I'm in the market!
This 81 sunfish belonged to my late father. I took her on, and as I was prepping to sail later this week, I discovered there's no damn rudder cheek assembly (main bolt, tension springs, etc) — looks like he never got around to mounting his latest homemade blade. God knows where the...
Hi everybody, last fall I bought my first real sailboat, a Pearson 24! Unfortunately the day I bought it and took it for a sail a piece of fiberglass delaminated from the rudder. When I took the boat out of the water for the season, I discovered that it actually is a solid wooden rudder, and a...
Needing the above if you have them. Want very good to excellent condition.
Will also consider a good used Mk II radial sail that you don't need again or any longer.
Sail - MkII radial class sail or newer generation sail w/Battens.
Main Sheet - about 50 feet, 5/16 so it's easy on hands...
$50 OBO. Honestly don't know much about it and thought I would reach out on this forum if anyone was interested. See pictures and email me at HaydenSeay3816@gmail.com if interested. Will ship at buyers expense.
Hello, I have a late 60's AMF Amflite Alcort in need of some parts
I am missing all the gudgeon provisions (see pic) to attach the rudder to the transom. I do have a complete rudder with tiller.
I also need:
Mainsheet swivel block
Old style drain block plug
Hi all. (Unfortunately) Due to this COVID19 all yacht clubs are closed, but sailing isn’t only offshore. And I wanted to separate my rudder from tiller/tiller ext to put everything in blade bag. But I found out my tiller stuck in a rudder (pictures below)
How can I separate them?
I got as a gift from a friend an Aqua Finn Daysailer's hull but with no other parts. So I am gathering and building the parts I need to sail. I love this project and would like some help finding parts and advice to build what I don't find. Thanks!
Hi, I have a 1984 Capri 14.2 I dropped the rudder lock handle in Saint Andrews Bay wile sailing in PCB this past weekend - continuing to slowly fill the oceans up with my boat parts.
I am looking for a handle please.
Looking for a used nylon / plastic or aluminum rudder head or cheek for a 1981 Sunfish restoration project. I also need a pintel pin but could easily obtain one new elsewhere.
As you know but for clarity, what I want attaches to the rudder blade to make a complete rudder.
I have a set of...
About to pull the trigger on an Intensity FRP rudder, but before I do, thought I would check here. Looking to buy or trade for a white composite rudder for Sunfish. I'm in Birmingham, Alabama and willing to pay shipping.

I have an older style rudder like this one on catalinadirect.
It uses a big wing nut to hold the rudder up or down, but the rudder still comes up when there is a lot of pressure on it. I try to avoid those situations, but when it happens, it couldn't be at a worse time.
There is a hole...
