Thanks Jacques for posting the drawing and the comment. I won't buy another rudder, but make this one a little lighter by removing a part of the bronze and then rebuild it with foam, glass and epoxy. Save some weight too, a nice winterjob in a heated workshop :) .

That sounds like a good plan. Your current rudder fits the bearing and you can build a strong new blade with glass and epoxy using the existing metal.
