Jim: If I recall, you replaced your rudder with a 384 rudder. I am contemplating the same, not because of rudder shape, but because my rudder is 40 years old. The folks at Attainable Adventure Cruising have scared me about such an old rudder. I hope to go offshore again soon. If you did replace the rudder, did it fit without a hitch? Were the holes for the gudgeons in the right place and the rudder stock long enough? Did it have a hole on the top of the rudder stock to firmly attach the emergency rudder? Have you had any problems with it? Thanks.
