I don't know if "dire" also means "quick" but Catalina direct sells them:

https://www.catalinadirect.com/index.cfm/product/2557/rudder-c-34-c-36brhdpe-unifoil-wing-keels.cfm

I think the factory may still be able to make you one.

More knowledgeable members should correct me if I am wrong but I would be wary of a used rudder.   I think each rudder post was custom drilled for the idiosyncrasies of fitting to it's particular boat.   You may find that on a used rudder the bolt holes may not line up correctly.

Thanks for reply. Yes dire meaning quick and affordable. I saw the Catalina Direct option $3k is way over my budget. Got to figure something else out. Understand I may run into issues...

In the Winter of 2015 I had to get a replacement rudder for my new to me C34 that had a damaged rudder. I worked with Catalina to get this and my notes show I paid $2518.00 plus $250 shipping. I worked with Len Keller there, Len Keller
