This rudder blade is a drop-in replacement for your boat's original blade, no modifications to your boat are necessary. Constructed of fiberglass and laminated with vinylester resin, molded with an NACA airfoil shape and finished with white gel-coat. This rudder blade was designed to reduce weight compared to our HDPE rudder blade, while also helping reduce weather helm and tiller effort. The true NACA airfoil shape maximizes lift while reducing drag, making it faster off the wind, with more control. The lift generated will help the boat point higher, and allow your boat to accelerate in puffs without rounding up.

A lifetime guaranty is extended to the original boat owner.

PLEASE NOTE THAT HDPE BLADES TAKE 2-3 WEEKS TO HAVE MADE

This small bushing goes inside the top of the rudder post to prevent it from deforming when the tiller handle mounting bolt is tightened. These are often lost when the tiller is removed or the rudder pull down cable is replaced. If yours is missing, you should replace it so the tiller can be properly tightened. Used on all late model 26C with internal stainless steel rudder post.
CABLE BOOT AND RING, 3" RUDDER, SHEAR PINS Gift Certificate
CABLE BOOT AND RING, 3"
Our Price: $7.99
RUDDER, SHEAR PINS
Our Price: $7.95
A rubber cable boot and mounting ring, sold together as a pair. This is a 3" diameter ring and can be mounted anywhere on the hull or transom, it is recommended that you use a marine sealant along with stainless screws when mounting this piece. Typically used with steering cables/controls or electrical wires. Delrin shear pins for rudder hold-down applications. These are designed
to be sacrificial, they hold the rudder completely in a down position
unless an underwater obstacle is encountered at speed.
For example, the Macgregor rudder assemblies require approximately 150
lbs of force on the tip of the blade to shear this pin, much less than
the loads transferred during a grounding, but dramatically more than is
evident while under sail at or above hull speed.
Unlike metal pins or nylon bolts, the delrin construction allows them to
shear completely rather than deform.
