vane ... should I buy a spare "servo rudder" ?
I have just purchased a 33' steel
yacht. Alan Pape designed Ebbtide.
The last owner now tells me he has made a spare servo rudder
. He showed me. Looks well made. He is asking $300 Australian for it.
He suggests that the mAries rudder
can be damaged by wave action and that a spare is good seamanship. I'm not convinced a servo rudder is often damaged this way. My question? Who among us would leap at the chance to buy a "spare servo rudder" for an Aries
excuse me if this is the wrong 'sub-forum' ... open to suggestion for better place to ask
