I’m finally getting around to attaching the Rudder. I’ve been delaying it until I finished most of the “on my lap” parts. Which means, I would work on it on my lap.
I’m going to first take the thickness of the Rudder down a bit… Perhaps by 3/4 of its size to start before attaching the Rudder Pintles.
I can’t really put the Gudgeons on the Stempost beforehand.
I’m making these Pintles out of this laser cut sheet of brass. Then I stuck a #18 Wire in there to act as the Pin that will fit in the Gudgeons that glue into the Stern Post.
