    There are several companies that could help as well as design firms, though you'll need to provide a lot more information. Typically, the make, model and year would be a start, plus any special attributes, such as keel/rudder types that might have been offered on that particular model and a more defined explanation about your heel fitting doubts.

    Hi PAR , the boat is a simple canalboat with a symmetrical divergent airfoil (fish tail ) section for the rudder.The material of the boat is Midsteel and the hull is entirely flat on bottom.It is a preliminary design.

    Post lines or photos, as your description isn't especially effective, possibly a translation issue.

    Usually you can buy rudder stock from any company that sells shafts. For short pieces, like what you seem to need, sometimes cut-offs are available at a discount. You can also buy a broken shaft and use the middle.
