We recently bought a Sonata (Scirocco from Steve Tribe) and sometime between it leaving Essex and getting to the Hamble the rudder pin has disappeared. We have looked every where. Rather than bodge the rudder on using bolts, I am trying to get hold of a new rudder pin , but have so far struggled – the hole appears to be about 10mm diameter.
Any help would be very very welcome.
Take the other pin to a small engineering company and ask for it to be copied – it shouldn’t take them long and won’t be expensive. If you have difficulty contact me and I’ll get one made here.
I am pleased to say after a bit more internet surfing and speaking to Select boats I have managed to get two rudder pins made for
