Ross 780 rudder and keel

Post by Captainjsw »

My son has purchased a Ross 780 from a salvage auction Damage to the hull is quite minor but the keel has snapped and the rudder is missing. Can anyone advise the dimensions of the rudder and I suppose the keel or where I might get them from. I have in the past built 2 large sailing catamarans so building a rudder and keel I suppose is not out of the question
Thanks John

You could try GeoffR as he used to build the Ross boats so may still have keel and rudder moulds. I think Geoff has retired but it is the best lead I can think of.

PS: You should also add where (roughly) you are located so appropriate help can be provided.

Cheers

GeoffR is also in Qld so it may be an easy answer
