CH17 rudder

Posted by Allan Reade on Oct 26, 2004

It's spring down here and the water beckons so I have to get this thing afloat. The pin for the rudder will have to be very close to the stern, where the hull is very narrow. I have resin end pours but question the strength of this arrangement. Is it worth using a stainless steel plate on the deck extending 3 or 4 inches forward screwed down into the shear clamps or is this overkill? Thanks. Allan Reade
