rudder repair

Jul 8, 2016
Thanks for the input, Tom. I really appreciate it. The idea of cutting the rudder shaft has been rolling around in the back of my mind, it probably is about time to cut my losses on move on. I'm still stubborn enough to give it at least one more try though! And It would definitely be a welcome surprise if the wood cleans up better than it appears. If not, I am strongly considering laminating boards up to the necessary thickness. I also noticed in David's post here:


he indicates the professionals built the new rudder for BLACK PEARL out of 3/4 plywood.
