DIY Rudder

Posted by Kurt Maurer on Feb 25, 2005

Howdy Gang!

Among the free boats I have been showered with lately is a Pygmy Osprey HP, which is tantamount, as far as I can see, to a WR180. It's a rather high volume 17'-6" x 22" sea yak with a multi-chined hull, and refuses to turn without assistance from several harbor tugs.

So, for the first time, I want a rudder. As usual, I cannot afford to buy, and must make one at home... or simply do without.

Behold then, the developing result...

Cheers, Kurt
