Need rudder

Skippers, I sustained severe damage to my 1988 Catalina 27's rudder. Any suggestions as to where I should be looking for a replacement?

Re: Need rudder

Were any of these wrecked in the year of the Hurricanes? Some yard may have kept parts. Otherwise, get a quote form Catalina and perhaps a rebuild from a qualified fin maker.

We had a new Center Board made for us by these guys. I also rebuilt my own rudder and had it vacuum bagged by local marine service guys. []
