Looking good. It is quite a bit different to the later rudders. Do you have the blade to go with it? The only other boat I have seen with the early rudder is A16 Dervorguila.
Hi Nick this is a mk1 rudder stock
I have 3x blades 2x dinghy style and a much larger blade which could be a mk2 0r 3 all in good condition. I could never understand why Faireys rebated the original so deeply as to remove a 1/3 of the rudder stock section.
You will also notice the length of the Skeg ,
Faireys also reduced its size on later boats.
