    I have a new bright master craft 32 inch boat. One of my rudders got broken during storage. I repaired it with hot glue for now, but idk how long it will hold. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a place where I could buy a replacement rudder, or if anyone has one laying around I would be interested.

    I would try to contact New Bright directly and check eBay. You can try super glue if the hot glue doesn't work well enough.

    do you have any pictures of the needed repair?....
    have you thought of trying ABS glue for plastic pipe or PVC glue?

    dont put it in the water with hot glue. your part will be gone forever. can you put up a pic of the break. best bet might be build one if possible. out of some scrap metal.

    That's a tough one, I couldn't find any parts for it, as posted above try to show some pics. It has the twin black plastic rudders? I saw one guy that converted them to a single standard metal rudder. Depending on what kind of tools you have you could possibly make one, lets see what you need.

    New Bright is toy grade, so there won't be any spare parts available for it. Best bet is to try to find a used one of eBay or fix the rudder yourself. Two part epoxy is very strong stuff but I don't know how it will hold up long-term. Might just be easiest to buy a new boat... toy grades are kind of like that.

    the break is at the very top of the rudder close to the rear of the boat
