I'm refurbishing a 1969 Sunfish (S.N. 60935) with new style rudder and need a rudder head. The hull needs a few minor repairs and a new sail. I have or will make the other parts to the rudder, though.

Nice looking boat, well worth getting back on the water. As you probably know, there are two rudder configurations, the so called "old style" (pre=1972 with bronze hardware that fits the bronze deck and keel hardware that I see in the photo of your boat and the "new style" that has a metal or plastic rudder head with kick up springs on the sides that attaches to the transom with a stainless steel "U" shaped bracket. Which do you need? Have you (or do you plan to) retrofit to the new style? I have bronze rudder attachment hardware that would fit your existing old style hardware an an old style tiler handle an a template to make a new rudder blade from 3/4" stock. Or I could sell you a complete conversion kit at a very decent price to upgrade to the new style rig,

I also have a very nice green and white class legal sail that would be a match for our deck graphics, Feel free to e-mail me at:
if you are interested in any of these options.
