S2 Rudder Repair 
When I owned ser#46, I repaired, refinished, and in the process, upgraded the rudder to resist wear. I'm about to start the same process with several rudders at once. If you would like to have a better appearing and functioning rudder in time for the coming season, and live within range of the Twin Cities, email or call me for a quote.
