A functional rudder

I spent all day on the rudder and tiller today. As it sits now I should have a fully functional sailboat. With the main sail done and the rudder complete I could – but I won’t ’til the rudder is sealed. But then again if it keeps raining like it has been here the past two days – I might be sailing around the back yard. 🙂

The rudder hardware came from Duckworks. It’s nice heavy duty stuff. 3/8″ pintles. The verticle gudgeons are for a Weekender. Racelite stuff.

I’ll pretty up the front end of the tiller with some fancy ropework probably. Or maybe leather.  We’ll see.
