HELP! Need Wauquiez 48PS Rudder - Drawings or Pictures

Hi All...

I have a 1995 48PS that I acquired that had a hard grounding (pounded flat wing keel on sandbar during tow) and lots of damage that is slowly being addressed... My next project is repairing the rudder that I have removed from the boat...

The big problem I have, is that at least the bottom 1/3 (maybe more) of the rudder is simply gone... I am looking for any drawings with dimensions, or at the very least, pictures of boats on the hard which might show the rudder blade itself...I can rebuild it... I just need to know what it looked like!!!

I tried emailing Wauquiez and Ed Dubois with no luck in receiving a reply…

Any other info or insights on the following would also be appreciated...

1. Rudder shaft seal... (source-size) I pulled it out from the bottom, but it looks like the bearing assembly needs to come out to replace from the top...

2. Rig info... Mine came down and is in 3 pieces... drawings, pictures or thoughts???

3. Keel joint separation... Looks like I got lucky and the bolts may have just backed off... Inspection from inside shows no damage... Will lift next visit to inspect and re-bed... Thoughts???

THANK YOU!!!

Ed
