(webmaster note; rudders, boards and sails for older boats are the most common items needed -- but there is no magic source, virtually all older parts that work are still attached to older boats that still work. And generally, it is the parts that fail or get lost before the boat. We'll be happy to post your note here if you need older rudders, or a used board, or are one of the hundreds looking for used sails, but don't expect results. Old style rudders are still available through Butterfly dealers, and all other parts including masts and centerboards fit all boats, regardless of age. And old, used sails, are, well, old and used.)
