Hi all,

new rudder blades are very difficult to fit into the old rudder boxes I have been using. So I am looking for new rudder boxes, anybody know who is making new ones? Alloy or other, happy to assemble alloy ones, if anybody has bent tubes.

So what's about, Vic or interstate confused .


Regards Gary.

Send me an email so I can return info on bending alloy cheeks to suite your requirements.

Tortured ply is clearly beautiful.

Hi Gary

Are they the same foils as the Blades are using? If so wouldn't Marcus Towell be a good starting point?

I can bend a couple up for you. These are the ones for the DS12. My mozzie ones will be 440 from the pintle to the end of the tiller. Cost would be meeting me in Sale or Rosedale for a hostage swap with my recent purchase.

No they are different, head is smaller, shape different etc.
So his boxes are different size. So not a option.

Thanks for the offer, drawings look good, you obviously have some drawing experience. How many have you made? Do you have anodised tube? Do you make the stainless fittings also? I can assemble ok, I have a riveter. Can probably make stainless fittings if needed also.

Gary I don't make anything out of metal I get my clients to do it for me. I have 2 sets of ds12 ones left but haven't started the mozzie ones yet.

They'll be anodized after bending and welding. I'll also supply the stainless bits but you can drill and fit them yourself.
