Default Rudder Mod

I want to double the size of the rudder on my Paradise. Was thinking about sanding it and laying on some fiberglass cloth? Any thoughts?


Thanks

Might be better to use the original as a pattern and make a complete new one.  If it doesn,t work as expected, you have a fallback.  And the chance to have another try.
