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:
