The rudder on Sabres are known to often have a problem such that there are mild steel tangs welded to the stainless rudder shaft – all of which is embedded within the rudder in foam and always wet or at least damp; the welds (between dissimilar metals) suffer from corrosion and are prone to break. Such a failure whilst sailing could lead to a very serious incident.
The rudder on this boat was split open last winter (2011-2012), the mild steel tangs were removed and replaced by stainless steel ones by a local marine welder. The rudder was epoxied back together and finally a layer of glass cloth epoxied onto the whole rudder.
