I'm looking for bronze rudder hardware for a 15' sailing dory (sort of). The trouble I'm having is locating a bronze gudgeon for a double-ended boat (i.e. no transom). Anybody know of such a source?

Steven: Maybe you could spread the straps of regular bronze gudgeons as available from Jamestown Distributors and others to fit. I don't know much about heating and bending bronze, so perhaps someone who does will speak up here.
There are also stainless gudgeons which might be easier to bend, but IMHO bronze would look better on this nice looking boat.

I had this problem with my shearwater, I eventualy gave up and used two bronze eyebolts. I didn't bolt them thru the stem (though you could) I just waxed them and burried them in an epoxy filled hole about 3" deep. They work fine and are removable. You want eye bolts with a relativly small hole (1/2" ID) and a shank diameter of about 3/8". Grind one of the pintal points shorter by about 3/4" so you don't have to get both pintals in at the same time.
