rudder stock I recently purchased a Manta 19 in need of some TLC and missing the entire rudder. From details elsewhere on this forum I'm having the steel rudder fabricated, but can anyone supply photos and measurements of the rudder stock and tiller, also measurements of the gudgeons. Presumably rudder stock is of marine ply (thickness?). Help very much appreciated. Thanks11Fri 19 Aug 2016 21:05:49
Manta rudder Greetings from the Isle of Islay, Argyll! I bought my Manta 19 in July and we have had lots of fun sailing from home on the south coast of the island. When I contacted a previous owner of "Ro-Ro" (now renamed "Haka") he informed me .... "I should warn you that the tiller as now fitted is not original and is insufficient to properly steer the boat in anything more than a light breeze. The blade should be of heavy metal." My son-in-law, a sailing instructor, has had a look at the sizeable wooden rudder and can see no fault in it. Can a fellow owner please supply me with a description and measurements of the original so that I can compare? I am baffled!!! Many thanks Freddie Bell5Sun 08 May 2011 00:13:31
