Attaching the Deadwood with the Rudder will eventually attach to.

I needed this on before proceeding any further since I need to both work on it and make my measurements with it in place.

I will eventually be taking a lot of wood off from it. Since the Planking will go over it, I need to thin it put to compensate for it.

I’ll take off approximately 1/2 off the thickness of the Deadwood.

Then, after I install the Planking, I’ll be able to sand it down so the thickness will be even with the Rudder.
