Wanted Kick-up Rudder

I have been looking as well. Hope you did not have the same experience I had. Perhaps the readers will learn from at least my mistake and double check to make sure the rudder locks in.

Do you happen to have the dimensions of the rudder? I am considering modifiying one it the dimensions are close enough.

If you have the rudder pintle assembly you can definitely make one. My choice would be to use a hard wood for strength and durability. You can use Ash and paint with a polyurethane bottom coat paint. I've made parts out of Ash, which is used for bats, oars & hockey sticks. It's strong and finishes well. Mahogany is good, and it's great for boat parts due to it's resistance to rot. It can be expensive and if using for a kick up rudder it might get beat up a bit.

Thanks, I had not thought of ash. Any Idea where I could get mahogany or ash. I would need a piece around 40" x 10". I looked at Lowes, but the best they have is oak

I have 4 or 5 rudders in the corner of my shop from past boats. I think one is from a capri. If you know the measurements I will be glad to confirm

Matt, I have an extra used kick up rudder. I am also looking for some good used sails for my capri.

I am still looking for sails for my boat. Thanks
I want to respect Matt's thread and request. If Matt does not respond, I would be interested in purchasing any parts... I need the full kick up rudder, tiller and hiking stick. Please call 512.826.6845

I want the rudder

I tried to send a private message to you through the forum. Apparently it didn't come through. I am interested in the rudder blade only, however if need be I will purchase the entire assembly. I would then be willing to sell the tiller head and handle together with a full scale tracing of the rudder blade so that EGarcia could create his own rudder.
I would like to hear from WindJunkie who posted he has a few rudders laying in his shop. I would rather not make a rudder if I can get one for a reasonable price. I also found another contact who I waiting to hear from

Rudder from Monomania

I want to sell the whole tiller and rudder together. I need the bucks to buy new sails for my boat. I was going to sell it for $150.00 plus shipping. I have no idea what it is to ship. If you and Ed want to work something out. I will ship the pieces to two different places making it more cost effective for you both. Ed has my email if you two can work something out.

Sold--Rudder to Matt

Nice talking to you Matt. The whole rudder system is yours. If Ed contacts you before I ship it, we can work on sending part of it to him.
