Finally Got My Rudders

I started the ordering process, no joke, July 7th with an email to Germany inquiring about rudders, gudgeons, rudder head and some plastic bow clips with the funny sideways screw holes... Just two weeks ago they finally arrived and now I have to exopy the trailing edge, prime, bottom paint, gel coat the head, then possibly recut the attachment point for a custom install because apparently they don't just fit my 1981 boat just right. Not sure this was worth it after shipping and importing costs. It is lighter though. I hope that proves to be a difference maker next season. Oh, and it's time to drop the keel, rebed and replace the keelbolts while I'm at it.
