Shel Silverstein missing rudder piece

HI! The rudder on my Victoria 18 is missing what i might call(if i knew anything) a brass lower rudder pin. I have no idea how to find the right size or even what to ask for. Any advice out there?

Although it was some time ago, I bought my gudgeons and pintles from Jamestown Distributors:

Hope you find what you need.
