    Some years back, I had Barber Welding make a new rudder blade for the outboard steering on my hydro. They will heat treat it and can supply you with documentation. IF they're still in business, you should be able to Google them. The steel offset wedge rudder I purchased from Glenwood for my ski boat, was manufactured by Barber Welding as well.
