My Rudder Snapped in Half Yesterday....

I was sailing around the St. Johns River in Jacksonville yesterday, the wind kept getting better and better (a storm was coming...), until my outboard rudder snapped off and my boat took a pretty sharp turn that made me think I was about to go over. Luckily I got the sails down and was able to use my outboard motor to steer me back to safety. Does anyone know if there is anywhere in Jacksonville where I can find a new rudder? Or what kind of information I need to buy a new one? I'm new to sailing so I'm unsure of these kinds of details. Thanks for the help.

The type of boat can be useful for people to help.

You can also try Foss Foam or IdaSailor to see if they can help.
