But too wet and windy to test, hopefully next weekend.
As I mentioned last post I glued together three pieces of oak left over from the rudder and leeboard into a board. In case one of the joins isn’t strong enough I also backed the board with perpendicular lengths of pine. All of this was given a coat of epoxy.
The hinges have been bolted on with 6mm stainless steel bolts on both the rudder and pivot board. To top it off I treated myself to a Ronstan Battlestick tiller extension.
The finished rudder:
I’m quite pleased with the wood on white contrast it brings.
