Hi Folks

Brand new to the forum, and sailing. I bought my first Laser and took it out for a test run........Well needless to say, the Youtube videos make sailing look a lot easier than it is. I had one heck of a time trying to rig in the wind, but eventually got there. Paddled her out into the lake, and boy-o-boy what a S&%t show. Almost tipped several times, lost my paddle, spun around in circles, and dropped my rudder to the bottom of the lake. I released the sail from the boom and paddled with my arms towards the shore. When I was in 4 feet of water, I got out of the boat and walked it 500m up the shore to my dock. All this in the first 5 minutes of sailing!

So.......I am in the market for a used rudder (just for pleasure sailing) if anyone has a spare that they want to part with. I have the tiller, and extension. Looking forward to trying this again. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
