Ross,

Should the rudder resonate "hollow" in some areas.or should it sound solid
everywhere?

Hold everything .

 

Is your boat a C&C 24?

 

If it is then the rudder is deliberately designed with the holes in it & the
C&C manual  states clearly that the holes are to be left open  & kept open .

 

Is yours a 24? If so I'll get out my manual & type out the exact words.

A question to the list

When I purchased my C&C 10 yrs ago it had weeps holes on the rudder, one
just below the water line and one along the bottom edge

The seller never brought these to my attention and I sailed that season with
them open

 

I had dried out the rudder and "sealed" the holes a few years ago only to
find the rudder water logged again

 

My question is:  is it normal to have to drill weep holes end of every
season and seal them every spring?

Is there ever a time that this does not have to be done?

 

Ruddered out

Taras
