would be better spent on a couple of spare break-away sleeves. They are pretty pricey , but far more likely to be needed than a spare rudder. Just make sure your rudder safety
line is on the bottom bolt of the break-away, and that it is tied to something nice and strong on the boat
. Also make sure before you leave on a passage
, to remove the rudder, and sleeve and slather both parts
with lanokote, then reassemble. If you dont do that on a regular basis, you can get corrosion
, and not be able to change a sleeve at sea, or even at the dock
. Another 2 cents worth. ______Grant.
