Looking for a complete dagger rudder and a pushpit for RL 24
New owner of a MkIII RL24. Not sure of the year and new to trailer sailing.
Need a complete dagger rudder design with frame and a pushpit. Any help would be great. Can't wait to be on the water :)

I had a pushpit made recently for $1K. The guy who made it took all the measurements etc. See if you can find someone locally who works in SS.

I had the same problem. I would up spending about $1,100 all up on a new rudder/ tiller set up. It was suggested to me to get a 1.8m long centreboard section from bethwaites in sydney (bethwaite.com) being a slightly modified 29er centreboard. (a bit longer and that was about it) cost about $500 A local boatbuilder then custom-made a rudder box and tiller to suit for about $600. My rudder box was stuffed so it needed doing anyway. This seems to work really well.
