Any ideas what this is

This was picked up in the Minch today by the Kaylana SY21, anybody know what it is??? Loks like a fin off a submarine but not sure.

    Looks like some sort of rudder Iain.

    Thought that too, just thought its possibly off a submarine.
    Could very well be Iain, put it on e-bay and ye might get a buck for it  O0

    Might just get enough for the balls of twine to mend the net up!!  O0 Someone will know where it came from!
    Hi Iain

    You mean something like this @ http://commons.wikim...resher_(SSN-593)_rudder_sunk.jpg

    A rudder off something , with a least 54  cms draught ,  (5.4 metres  19'-0") as the depth marks on the rudder blade read. O0

    Pretty sure its the top part of a nuke rudder they have a small piece on main steering rudder that turns independantly think its to increase rate of turn any way its worth a right few bob !!!!
