Our new fiberglass rudder is a massively strong , light weight rudder for racing, cruising, offshore or other heavy weather use. For boat displacements up to 5200lbs and transoms up to 34" for the balanced leading edge. Overall length of 78", chord width of 14" and 1.75" cross sectional thickness compares to 76" X 12" X 1-1/2 for our standard polyethylene rudder. Along with a couple of extra inches in length and the greater chord length affords more control at high rudder loads. True NACA 00125 airfoil blade, balanced rudder for reduced helm effort. The high lift to low drag foil helps your boat to weather and increases speed off the wind. Docking and tacking are easier and crisper, giving you more control of your boat during low-speed maneuvers as well. This rudder includes a pair of our super-duty stainless pintles. This rudder will come to you with gel coat finish on upper section and a primer barrier coat below general water line area, ready for bottom paint.
