Thanks all for the help and advice. My conversion is done and the new rudders perform wonderfully.

If anyone needs pics just let me know I took pics for every step.

Sorry for being late to the party. I do not look at this forum enough. Glad everything worked out for you.

I drilled the extra holes and backed them with SS washers. Never had a failure, and they worked great! Hope you like the way they handle as much as I did.

Later,
Dan

Thanks yes they do handle much nicer. I used a small SS plate backed with washers and then the nuts. I also Sika flexed the plate and screws in place. Getting ready to give them the run down the ditch and see the long distance test.

Nice job at the Alter Cup.
