84 stars and stripes rudder and strut
 
Its high summer in New Zealand and I have skied the last seven days.

Yesterday though I had a disaster on the water - hitting an un-marked rock while towing a friend. I have lost the rudder completely, damaged the prop, twisted the prop strut, and there was some minor gelcote damage aft of the strut. The prop shaft appears straight.

The rock is now marked...

I need to find though a new strut and rudder. I have had a browse through the skidim catalog I had, and couldnt find a rudder noe a strut for the 84. Im not really sure of the specs for the rudder.

I have had a browse of ebay, google, and teamtalk but cant find a clear source. Can anyone give me guidance on what to buy from where?

Cheers

Richard

Jim at Bay Area Water Sports hooked me up with a strut for my 84 Powerslot a few months ago (no, I didn't damage it btw -- I bought it wrecked and fixed it). He had to get it from Mastercraft.

Try Glenwood Marine, they had what I needed for my 1972 Mastercraft. I had a rudder log or stuffing box (whatever it's called) go bad on me. They made the original one but did not have any in stock so I upgraded to a beefier model. Works great!
