Back to work after eating too much holiday turkey!
Today was rudder gusset day. At nearly every joint, there is some kind of reenforcement block. Below is the attach point for one of the rudder wire/turnbuckle fittings. It's grooved to accept the trailing edge. I have not glued it on yet, as when this picture was taken, I was still cutting and fitting.
This is more like the standard 3/4 in gussets. I made a bunch of these. When it's dry tomorow, I hope to sand everything flush. It will look a whole lot nicer that way!
Now, for the rudder horn blocks. In order to fit the 7/8 in. rudder post, the blocks were formed in the usual fashion.
Then they were bansawed and sanded to shape. Once again, everything will be sanded smooth.
More to come!
