BUT I have TRANSOM PINTLES so I need rudder gudgeons...agree with the best quality so they do not break or need to be replaced...Allen

:: Allen,

:: We will have to see what the rudder builders think about
:: thickness, but I expect them to recommend a 1" thick
:: blade at the waterline and above. It this is the case,
:: you will probably need new rudder hardware and that will
:: enable you to keep your old rudder as a spare. Take a
:: look at the APS selection of hardware at
:: http://www.apsltd.com/Tree/d3000/e727.asp.

:: Check your pintle size. It is most likely 5/16", which
:: is appropriate. In my opinion the Sea Sure products are
:: really good, and they make one for 1" thick rudders with
:: 5/16" pins. Ronstan also makes similar fittings and they
:: are is probably easier to find, but APS doesn't list
:: them. But use good stuff so you never have to worry
:: about it!
