Trash Romaer steel rudders... Just trash those old rudders... when you pull them out you are going to see the rudder pole/shafts have deteriorated in circumfrance anyway. Make new ones out of stainless and pop a zinc in each one. Sed up the old ones and tell Kenny to make you new ones. The guy is top of the line and won't rip you off. Your tubes may be ok, but acid bath them and make sure to coat with bottom epoxy a few times up the shafts. Most old Romaer rudders bang around... just grab them and you will see probably.. rudders shoud not bang around.. but it they are seized they won't. Ours seized too.. it's an inherent design flaw. Not into Sea Rays... Roamers are way tougher and will crush a Sea Ray if it ever hit one into glass dust. Also, a Roamer with the same power will beat it in speed considerably. The only thing a Sea Ray will do is roll more (Roamers don't roll withthat nice hard chine... but a Sea Ray likely hits a head on short chop Sea more smoothly.. can't have it all.
