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.
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.
