26X rudders

Does anyone have an old broken pair of 26X rudders that they would like to part with? I am looking for something to use as a the basis for fashioning a set of shortened but widened rudders for inland waterways use.

Re: 26X rudders

I bought some marine plywood, cut two pieces to the shape I wanted, varnished them and they perform pretty well. A marine hardwood might have been better, but more difficult to work with. Plywood ones best not left in the water when not in use, but they survived about ten days extensive use last year without problems and look ok for this year.
