Our rudder had that same crack this year and I was able to repair it.   After grinding out the crack to metal the area was ground back to a good taper I laid in layers of glass starting narrow and ending up wrapping the full length of the taper.   The results looked good and I hope strong.

Had thought about repairing but have the old style rudder and think I can take care of two issues at once.
Hope your repair stands the test of time :thumb:

Been busy while waiting for rudder, ground keel down and faired. The keel had what I will guess is electrolysis corrosion. Put 3 layers of biaxial on the joint, faired, and barrier coated.
Filled the void by the new strut and barrier coated.
The rudder will go in come spring as the lifts are all tied up pulling boats for the winter.
