Subject: rudder removal

Ardi Thank you for the videos I have enjoyed all of the ones you have posted. My rudder has a hole in the wood about 3 inches under the waterline. It is about 1 inch deep by 2 inches wide and about 6 inches long. one of the fellows here in the marina reccomends filling the hole with an epoxy paste made for underwate use. The rest of the rudder appears to be solid.After seeing how the rudder is attached I will wait til after pullout before attempting more.

[> [> [> dont use epoxy, where is the hole ? -- Ardi, - Friday - 02/28/14 - 10:20pm

is it at the back side of the rudder or else where ? If in the back side the teak cap has fallen off and since is deep , it means that the threaded end of the rod and the nut has corroded and fallen too. So just like me and the owner of "Waka Erie" you will need to replace them all before the rudder falls apart. About the hole , just put a teak cap and paint it with bottom paint, it will be fine. read the post, you'll find more info http://www.voy.com/119861/3889.html
