Desperately need a used rudder and tiller for a 1986 Capri 14.2. I have found a couple places to purchase one for 450.00 to 500.00 but only paid 600.00 for my girl and can't afford that amount. If anyone is parting out a boat, please keep me in mind. I can find a tiller pretty easily but have been searching for a rudder for 2 years. Any help will be appreciated. Please email brenda@willowbrookhomes.com with any info or suggestions.

Try the Sailboat Shop in Austin Texas. The nice folks there helped me tremendously in recently refitting an 87 Capri 14.2. I would trust them with a mail order.

I got a rudder blade there a few weeks ago for $225 and a new tiller handle with "battle stick" for $80. The rudder blade may have been new or used, I don't know, it looked new to me. I left my old very weathered tiller handle with them as a "tip". :)

Why not just make a wood one out of a board ? Buy the pintles at some place like west marine. Just a thought.
