Hello, I need the following parts:

I need these ASAP:
1 Complete rudder assembly, including rudders (plastic)
-2 castings with all mechanisms
-2 rudders
-complete cross bar section, with tiller extension (as I am using some conduit at the moment)

I would like the following:
H14 jib assembly
H14 dolphin striker

Currently i am racing my H14 with two hand made rudders that are both for made for the same side of the boat and one is almost half the size of the other, one rudder casting is cracked so the rudder kicks up at will. This is the urgent need for the rudder assemblies.

The dolphin striker is so i dont break any thing while out on the trapeze. The jib is so i can sail closer to the wind with more power and get a little more from my boat who is capping out while sailing against keel boats. To win handicap i need to beat the next top boat by 45 minuets....

If you have the parts please contact me at Sparocool@hotmail.com

I will pay for them by using pay pall.

A few things:
- The rudders should be identical. There is no "right" or "left" rudder.
- It sounds like you don't need two "whole rudder assemblies" - just two rudders and a casting (not sure which one since you don't say).
- You don't need a new front crossbar - just the dolphin striker. It's an easy retrofit.
- A jib will not allow you to point closer to the wind. It gives you more power on a reach at the expense of pointing ability.

The ones i have on at the moment are hand made and are not the original designs, the previous owner made them by hand and they were made to compliment one another. The problem is, i have broken all of the rudders for the left hand side, so i only have right ones left, so when i am sailing one sticks out in to the water on an odd angle and it almost takes all of my strength to keep a steady course.

Thanks for the tips also I will edit and make sure people know what I am tying to say.
