Hi I am the new owner of a 342 
I am new to this forum 
Former Dufour owner, hope to be a part of this forum from now on 
The damask on the rudder is broken 
If someone now were to obtain this part
It’s the damask on the ruder tunnel 

Kind regards jonas straka

The Danish company Jefa sells them: https://jefa.dk/products/sealing-systems/. They have one version that you glue yourself so you don't have to lower the rudder.

I replaced my original rudder with a rudder from Jefa at the beginning of this summer and have not yet fitted a new gaiter. I think Jefa's gaiter is too expensive so I will get some neoprane and make one myself.

I would say the main reason for having a gaitor in the 342 is to stop dirt from getting to the lower bearing so I am not worried to sail without it for a while.

PS. Welcome to the forume by the way! The 342 is a great boat.

I actually got a quote from Jefa for a gaiter shipped to Sweden - EUR 139.
