Default Need help with damage at Osh

Well it happened again. We were damaged at the 2011 Sun n Fun tornado. Now we have damage at Osh. It is not as bad as the Avenger but we had a tail dragger run into the back of our rudder. It is destroyed. Is there anyone around Osh that may have a finnished rudder I may be able to use to get home on. If anyone can help please call my cell. My cell is (for-zero-5 / ate 2 two / zero 6 two one)

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: I guess I am no help, the RV-9 comment came up while I was typing.

I'm not near Osh, but I have an RV-7/7A rudder collecting dust while I finish the rest of the plane. I could ship it or pass it off to someone headed that way from Dallas.

The bottom fairing isn't attached yet, but It is drilled and fitted, so I could throw some blind rivets in and be good enough. Let me know if you need it. Three 1 zero, nine one 8, 2 four zero 2

Default Thanks to everyone

I want to thank everyone for your offers to help. This truly is a great community. So Butch is driving to Osh tonight and bringing a rudder for me to bolt on. Butch you are a lifesaver. In addition, after the incident I went down to the Vans tent and talk to Van himself about it. Van has a retired RV 9 in their shop. They are pulling the rudder off and overnighting it to the show. I now have a Plan A and a Plan B. If something happens with Butch's trip, I will have Van's rudder sometime tomorrow. If Butch's rudder works Van tells me they will be able to put it on their truck and take it back when they go home. Things are looking good for now. Thank you Butch and Van and everyone on this forum.

Live Long and Prosper!
