Boat Type: Mirage 27

Need to remove the rudder on a Mirage 27 due to fiber glass DE-lamination. Boat is currently in the water but will go onto a cradle in late October. I am trying to determine how much extra height needed under the cradle in order to be able  to withdraw the rudder.
If any one has diagrams or the like it would be appreciated.
Thanks

Can't you remove it while it's in the slings?  Otherwise you may just need to dig a hole in the ground if the shaft is too long to clear keel level. You may well have thought of all this, but just I'd throw it out there.

Looks like you just have a pole running down through from about the waterline up to the deck. Same system as on my boat - the length of the pole would therefore be equal to the the height of your boat at that point.

You may be able to remove the rudder and lift the pole UP too, so I'd look at that as a possibility...
