    I’m at my lake house for the summer and don’t keep parts here but just bought a parts boat and it is here so I will check it tomorrow.
    Just got your PM.

    Mischief IV I’m guessing you don’t have the rudder on your parts boat? I guess I’ll go ahead and order the new one. Thanks.

    I would be inclined to get a comparable size and shape rudder as original, rather than the small tournament ski boat rudder SkiDIM sells. I ended up going with a Mastercraft rudder, see my thread on replacement here: https://forum.supraboats.com/showthr...er-replacement

    I'm glad I went with this large rudder, it is at least as good as the original so far as handling and the stuffing box is superior, with replaceable plastic inserts and o-ring rather than direct brass on brass and packing.

    I do still have my original Saltare rudder. I don't know how much of the slop was in the rudder vs the port, but it is straight with no cracks and never hit anything so far as I know. Too much slop for me to be worth disassembling and repacking a worn out rudder port, but it would probably work for you at least to get through the season or whenever you get to replacing it.

    Hey cadunkle - that Saltare rudder looks identical to mine. But just to confirm is the shaft 1 1/8” diameter and 5 1/2” long and it’s keyed on the side that says “Supra” (or the port side)? If so, I’d love to buy it from you. I think all the rest of my steering parts are fine so I think it would last me a lot longer than just this season. If you want to send a direct message we can work out the details. Thanks a bunch!

    RuudDog, I hope the rudder worked out for you.

    Cadunkle - yes, thank you so much. “New” rudder you provided is installed and ready to test (hopefully this weekend). There’s a very small amount of play in it that I don’t think I had before so it’s possible that the rudder box was damaged just a little bit I think I’m good to go. Thanks again!
