lost rudder

Recommended Posts

I have a whisper based in Greece. My name is James. Nice to read about all your adventures. Went sailing for the first time, yesterday, capsized and the securing pin which is "supposed" to hold the rudder in place, didn't! Result 1 lost rudder. Wonder what you all use to hold the rudders in place! Cheers James

ON current boat, rudder pin is a long rod with cotters on top and bottom.  Previous boats used long bolts with nylock nut on the bottom.
